Peregrine Book Co. Staff Picks: September 2017

Peregrine-LOGOCatered by Reva Sherrard

“Plainwater”

By Anne Carson

Both intimate and dazzling, my favorite essay from this collection is “Part V: The Anthropology of Water,” where Carson takes the reader on a pilgrimage in search of water. ~Lacey

“Too Much and Not the Mood: Essays”

By Durga Chew-Bose

With intense lyricism, Chew-Bose ruminates on moments of her childhood and what it means to be a creative woman today. Both memoir and cultural criticism, “Too Much and Not the Mood” is poignant, philosophical, and deeply personal. ~Lacey

“Sophie Calle: True Stories”

By Sophie Calle

As a writer, photographer, installation artist, and conceptual artist, Sophie Calle presents something unique, absorbing, and honest with “True Stories.” ~Lacey

“My Dyslexia”

By Phillip Schultz

Required reading for anyone who has ever been made to feel broken or unimportant due to a learning disability. Schultz will revive your belief in the beauty and extraordinary intelligence that come thanks to, rather than in spite of, learning disabilities. ~Bekah

“Catching the Big Fish”

By David Lynch

Yes, it’s a book by the film director David Lynch. Sparse and minimal, Lynch explores the creative process by homing in on the idea of sparking the fire from within. Surrealism and Transcendental Meditation collide! ~Joe

“Summerlong”

By Dean Bakopoulos

A novel of surburban love both marital and extramarital. Tender, funny, and irresistible. ~Michaela

“A Visit from the Goon Squad”

By Jennifer Egan

Powerful, emotionally riveting linked short stories that spiral through the music scene. Highly recommended! ~Michaela

“Half-Earth”

By E. O. Wilson

Wilson is one of the true giants of our time, who somehow manages to always find a path forward. This is one of the only books in print to suggest a real, ecologically-based solution to the global environmental crisis! ~Ty
