Here's just a tiny taste of the wonderful bargains in store for you: On the fiction side, you can get The Widows of Eastwick by John Updike, The Ministry of Special Cases by Nathan Englander, and The Third Angel by Alice Hoffman -- only $6.50 each! Or you can get Marilynne Robinson's novel Home, which won about a zillion prizes, for only $7.50. Or, as you can (sort of) see in this photo, one of my favorite books -- The Night Train to Lisbon by Pascal Mercier -- is a mere $5.50! What a deal!
On the nonfiction side equally delightful treasures await, including The Man Who Loved China by Simon Winchester for $7.50, Janis Ian's memoir Society's Child for $6.50, The Forger's Spell: A True Story of Vermeer, Nazis, and the Great Art Hoax of the Twentieth Century by Edward Dolnick for $6.50. We've also got The Wise Heart by Jack Kornfield for a mere $6.50, and if Buddhist psychology doesn't solve what ails you, you can try The Perfect Drink for Every Occasion for only $5.50.
In most cases we only have one or two copies of each of these treasures, so come quickly while you have the best selection to choose from. Jennie has really outdone herself this time!
