Stars for Eugenides & Indridason!

Does your library have copies of these new books from these two bestselling authors? (You should!)

FRESH COMPLAINT by Jeffrey Eugenides
“Pulitzer Prize–winning Eugenides’ first story collection, and his first book since THE MARRIAGE PLOT, is gifted with the strong voices and luminous prose his novels are known for. Readers will enjoy lamenting that this complete and utterly human collection must, after all, end.” Booklist, starred review

“These stories skillfully explore the often elusive quest for happiness and self-knowledge, along with the many complexities that attend relationships with family, friends, and lovers. Essential for all fans of literary fiction.” — Library Journal, starred review

THE SHADOW DISTRICT by Arnaldur Indridason
“Indridason provides a great window into Icelandic culture as he explores his recurring themes of greed and abuse of power.” Publishers Weekly, starred review

“The award-winning author of the ‘Inspector Erlendur’ series (INTO OBLIVION) continues his modus operandi of simultaneously covering a current and cold case in this new series set during the war years. The inspectors, past and present, are formidable characters, and the blend of police procedural with Icelandic folklore is intriguing. VERDICT While not as dark as lndridason’s previous works, this is a welcome addition from a master of the genre.” — Library Journal, starred reviews
