As promised in last week's email, plenty of January books are in. You'll find the complete list at New Arrivals.
You'll find new books by Margaret Frazer, John Lescroart, Tamar Myers, Judith Kelman, Lyn Hamilton and many others. Check out the complete list at New Arrivals.
Among the new titles are a few worth a special note.
Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food may seem an odd choice for a mystery book store but I'm a big fan of his and I think he's worth reading. The book examines food and our relationship to it in a novel, informative and challenging way that is always entertaining. The result of years of research that carried him through the earlier The Omnivore's Dilemma and The Botany of Desire, Pollan has an excellent grasp of the complex relationship between food and the processed food industry. His simple prescription: Eat food, not too much, mostly plants. By food, incidentally, Pollan means things your grandmother would have recognized as food--pop tarts and cheetos don't count.
Secondly, we have reissues of Lisa See's splendid three book series set in modern China and featuring Beijing detective Liu Holan and American attorney David Stark. Beginning with Flower Net and continuing with The Interior and Dragon Bones, See explores many aspects of modern Chinese life including the operation of the police. A fascinating series.
Sara Paretsky has a new novel out, Bleeding Kansas, and we've got a limited number of signed copies. Although her new book is not in the V.I. Warshawski series, it's not even a mystery but rather a straight novel, fans will certainly enjoy this compelling tale of two Kansas families. Set in the area of Paretsky's own birth, it reflects the history of Kansas in it's central characters: two families who have been there since the 1850's when Bloody Kansas referred to the slavery vs. anti-slavery battles of the era. The novel, however, is quite contemporary as current events batter the descendants of these pioneers and force them to face truths they would rather avoid.
Please order signed copies early as we have only a limited number.
