At Interabang Books we love to ask our customers what they’re reading. We share some of their answers in What's on the Nightstand, a feature focused on what our friends in the community have been reading (or intend to).

Skip Hollandsworth is a journalist, a screenwriter, and the executive editor of Texas Monthly. A four-time finalist for a National Magazine Award, the industry’s equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize, he won in 2010 for “Still Life,” his story about a young man who, after a crippling football injury in high school, spent the next 33 years in his bedroom, unable to move. The 2011 movie BERNIE, which he co-wrote with Richard Linklater, is based on Skip’s story, “Midnight in the Garden of East Texas.” His true crime history about a series of murders in Austin in 1885, THE MIDNIGHT ASSASSIN, has been a national bestseller, and its paperback edition was the top-selling work by a local author during Interabang’s first year in business.


            

Clock Dance: A novel

By Anne Tyler

Clock Dance: A novel Cover Image
$26.95
Currently Out of Stock - No ETA
ISBN: 9780525521228
Published: Knopf - July 10th, 2018

As soon as it was released in July, I bought it. I always read Anne Tyler. I love her so much that my wife and I named our daughter Tyler Anne. Yes, all of her novels are set in Baltimore, they circle around minor domestic issues, and the characters feel similar – but I don’t care. Since I first read DINNER AT THE HOMESICK RESTAURANT, she has made me swoon.

The Girls: A Novel

By Emma Cline

$17.00
ISBN: 9780812988024
Availability: NOT IN STOCK - Usually arrives in 7 - 14 business days
Published: Random House Trade Paperbacks - May 9th, 2017

I still am fascinated by young first novelists who hit it big with coming-of-age novels (largely because I tried it myself for a few years before realizing I wasn’t much of a fiction writer), and when I saw the paperback version of THE GIRLS (which was the first-novel sensation of 2016), I impulsively grabbed it.

The Outsider: A Novel

Availability: NOT IN STOCK - Usually arrives in 7 - 14 business days
Published: Scribner - May 22nd, 2018

My only hobby in life is going to bookstores and buying books that I think I will read. And then I never get to them. My purchase of Stephen King novels fits this category. I buy Stephen King, I always want to read Stephen King, I put him on my bedside table, and I never pick him up again. This time might be different. The Outsiders has gotten such great viewers. But there are so many things to read and so little time.

Published: Crown - August 7th, 2018

Yes, Mimi is a fellow Texas Monthly writer and good friend of mine. But she is a master of narrative nonfiction (my own field), and TICKER, about the race among Houston doctors to build and successfully implant an artificial heart, reads like a thriller.
