“‘Washington Black’ by Esi Edugyan. A finalist for the Man Booker Prize, the book is a thrilling antebellum adventure. The inventive narrative follows a 13-year-old field slave and an eccentric naturalist and abolitionist from a Barbados sugar plantation, to Virginia, to the Arctic, to London, to Morocco. Fraught with ‘cliff hanger twists’ this book is a celebration of freedom, knowledge, love, betrayal, and redemption. Unforgettable and irresistible. One of the best books of last fall.” — Carolyn, BookHampton

“‘Talk’ by Linda Rosenkrantz. You’re on the beach overhearing conversations and you can’t help being drawn in. This fascinating novel composed purely of dialogue is based on tape-recorded conversations among 20-something friends circa 1965 vacationing at a well-known East End beach. Funny how contemporary these voices and story still are in 2019.” – Maryann, Canio’s Books

“‘Heels of Steel’ is a novel about the queen of New York construction by ‘Real Housewives of New York’ star Barbara Kavovit. The semi-autobiographical novel offers an account of a woman who owns and runs her own construction company. This book is what you need to learn in order to survive and succeed in an all-boys world. Playing in a man’s world is tough enough, but when you enter the world of construction in NYC, you really need ‘Heels of Steel’—strength, fortitude and never take ‘no’ for an answer! Bravo Barbara!” —Jane, Bedside Reading

“‘Recursion’ by Blake Crouch is an intriguing techno-thriller from the author of ‘Dark Matter’ and ‘Wayward Pines’ that takes an interesting approach to time travel and the nature of reality. ‘Recursion’ reads like a cross between Michael Crichton and Nelson DeMille.” Greg, Southampton Books and Sag Harbor Books

“‘The History of Living Forever’ by Jake Wolff. What do you do when your first love dies and bequeaths you his life’s work? And what do you do when you discover his life’s work was not actually the chemistry work you thought, but a mythical elixir of life— something that makes you immortal. How far would you go for someone you love? ... Wow.” —Taylor, Berry & Co.
