THE RESTORATION OF OTTO LAIRD by Nigel Packer
A funny, moving, and heartwarming novel about a retired architect’s attempt to reclaim the past. “Densely layered, Packer’s novel explores the importance of introspection, the durability of memory, and the conflict between man-made order and natural chaos. Readers who enjoy the work of Francine Prose and Charles Belfoure will adore Packer’s haunting and poignant novel.” — Booklist, starred review

TRAVELLING TO WORK: Diaries 1988-1998 by Michael Palin
The third volume of Michael Palin’s witty and insightful diaries, following the former Python as his already prolific career took an unexpected turn towards travel. “The continuing chronicles of Palin will be of interest to Python and Palin fans, Anglophiles, and anyone who has interest in the cultural world of the 1990s, as they provide delightful reading and time well spent with a fascinating and perceptive man.” — Library Journal
