The origins of film and a portrait of a life– Happy book birthday to these 2 starred novels!

THE ELECTRIC HOTEL by Dominic Smith

2 starred reviews!

“A compelling plot, robust characters, and finely crafted prose richly evoke a bygone age and art.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Smith’s tale is as luminous as celluloid projected on a silver screen hung from a dirigible floating over the Hudson (yes, this happens). Highly recommended for historical fiction fans and readers who love old Hollywood novels.”–Booklist, starred review

AUG 9 – FOG by by Kathryn Scanlan

“Scanlan’s outstanding debut inventively adapts a real woman’s diary… The book is a fascinating chronicle of Scanlan’s obsession, but, more than that, it transforms a seemingly ordinary life into a profound and moving depiction of how humans can love and live. Scanlan’s portrait of an everywoman feels entirely new.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
