All the Wild That Remains

By David Gessner
Gessner explores the roles two writer-environmentalists, Edward Abbey and Wallace Stegner, have had on the American West. As we face overpopulation, fracking, fires, and drought, it’s rewarding to revisit the words of these passionate men.

The Blondes

By Emily Schultz
A hilarious novel in which all blondes carry a rabies-like disease, causing the fair-haired everywhere to hide their golden locks. Blondes suffering from the disease start attacking New Yorkers at random. A brilliant satire and thriller with literary merit.

The Well

By Catherine Chanter
In this suspenseful story, water is running out except on one farm, which becomes known as The Well. As the situation grows dire, neighbors and government leaders speculate as to why the farm flourishes, which puts the family that owns The Well at risk.

This is How it Really Sounds

By Stuart Archer Cohen
The story of three men—a former extreme skier, a famous financier, and an aging rock star—with the same last name, all searching for something lost: youth, power, purpose. A novel that explores the unlived life through adventure and humor. 

War of the Encyclopaedists

By Christopher Robinson and Gavin Kovite
The story of two friends: One sent to Iraq with his National Guard unit, while the other enters academia in Boston. They communicate by editing a Wikipedia page about their friendship. Their entries are smart, funny, and moving.
