Quirky Books

For the readers of unique and curious books.

EGOT winner Mel Brooks, a legend across television, film, stage, shares his life story in All About Me! From his beginnings as a Depression-era kid in Brooklyn to the beginning of his career as a comedian with Sid Caesar to his rise in the film industry with his hits, The Producers, Blazing Saddles, and Young Frankenstein. Now at 95, Brooks has taken the opportunity to look back at his accomplishments and triumphs. 

From A. S. Byatt, the Booker Prize winner for Possession, comes a collection of short stories, Medusa's Ankles. Carefully curated from her lifetime of work, these tales transport readers into a realm beyond the ordinary.

The Sentence, by beloved author and bookseller Louise Erdrich, is set in her own Minneapolis store Birchbark Books. A ghost haunts the store during the beginning of the pandemic and the unrest following George Floyd's death.  

Haruki Murakami is well known for his eclectic novels and penchant for the eccentric; in Murakami T: The T-shirts I Love, he presents his collection of interesting t-shirts, including his "I put ketchup on my ketchup" shirt, a commemorative Beach Boys tee, and a selection of car brand shirts accompanied by short, but revealing, essays. 

Profusely Illustrated: A Memoir by Edward Sorel, contains more than 172 of the caricaturist's drawings and cartoons that complement the highlights of his remarkable life: from his poor Depression-era childhood in the Bronx to his current status in New York's top art and literary circles, Sobel examines what it means to exist in the space where the personal and political collide in art.

Sarah Winman, author of Tin Man, has a winner with her new book, Still Life. An ode to chosen family and a love letter to the city of Florence; an uplifting tale that will whisk the reader away.
