The Telling is the Art: A Look at Lee Martin’s LATE ONE NIGHT

I remember attending a reading at a downtown art gallery in Nacogdoches in 2009. The author was Lee Martin, still fresh as a Pulitzer Prize finalist for his novel THE BRIGHT FOREVER, of which he read from that evening. At the time, I was purely bent on reading contemporary poetry, but Martin’s reading that night rattled me and I (along with a line of others) rushed the signing table afterwards and purchased his novel. It’s still one of the best readings I’ve been to.

Two Great Novels in Translation

Great stories burn brightly in any language. As the weather starts to heat up, dive into these two wonderful novels in translation!

Bygone Bestellers - Betty MacDonald's THE EGG AND I

Bygone Bestsellers is an Interabang project devoted to works with enduring value, going beyond name recognition or Top 10 lists from years ago. In some cases the recognition is fading; in others, TV or movie adaptations have kept the name familiar. These books’ heyday may have passed, but they offer fresh rewards for today’s readers. Each season Kyle will recommend four of them, all still in print decades after they first landed on bestseller lists.

Great Passages About Love in Literature

It’s the season for celebrating love. Love comes in many forms, but always pulls at our heartstrings with its spirit of caring, generosity, kindness, and compassion. It’s the subject of much of literature throughout history, and the inspiration for some of the most remembered and revered passages in some of our favorite books. If you need a small token of love or friendship for someone you hold dear, stop by the store to pick up your favorite or let us help you find a new one. Here are a few of my favorite passages about love.

 

10 Life-Changing Coming-of-Age Stories

Coming-of-age books hold a special place on my bookshelf. My father once told me that if I learn one good thing from a book, then it was absolutely worth reading. I find that these books, often referred to as bildungsroman, have taught me a number of things while still counting among my most enjoyable reads. Fiction allows us to have new experiences, especially when we are growing and learning about the world. These books have both articulated thoughts I considered uniquely mine and showed me something new and intriguing about the world.
