Peregrine Book Co. Staff Picks: June 2018

Peregrine-LOGOCatered by Reva Sherrard

Hindu Myths” translated by Wendy Doniger

This is the best “101” on the subject of Hindu myths available to the public. If you see any book about Hinduism with Wendy Doniger’s name on it, it’s a book worth reading. ~Joe

In the Droom” by Heitham Al-Sayed

In the Droom” takes place in a shifting yet familiar subterranean, subconscious reality that is very similar to non-reality. A really wonderful book for a very particular reader. ~David

Blackwing” by Ed McDonald

A dark, gritty, practical-minded fantasy with a good dose of humor and compelling characters. It’s fast-paced, too. ~Sean

Swing Time” by Zadie Smith

This story of race, roots, and surviving childhood is an energetic dance through time and place, full of vivid imagery and harsh language. “Swing Time is a fight with the past, present, and future. ~Lacey

Mistborn” by Brandon Sanderson

Our semi-heroic band of thieves conspires to overthrow a god-king who has ruled uncontested for a thousand years. Original and vibrant, this is some of fantasy lord Sanderson’s best work. ~Sean

Divine Tragedy” by Dan Drazen Mazur

Filled with profound hilarity, from dedication to valediction. When you read this, I’ll probably still be laughing. And it’s by a local author! ~Bekah

Homegoing” by Yaa Gyasi

An extraordinary exploration of slavery, both in the United States and Africa. Gyasi somehow makes this difficult subject entrancing, with wonderful characters and a feeling of hope, even beauty. A unique novel on an important subject. ~Ty
