The Outsider: A Novel
If you’re anything like us, you have been, at one point or another, hypnotized by Stephen King. He has been unsettling and horrifying readers for decades, and The Outsider is no exception. It starts with the discovery of a body and will sweep you away into a tale of suspense and shock unlike anything you’ve ever read. Perfect for reading under the bright summer sun.
At last, a new collection of essays from the make-you-laugh-so-hard-you-cry wunderkind David Sedaris. But if you think you know what to expect, you’re wrong. In Calypso, Sedaris turns his keen eye to mortality, and the effect is a darkly comic collection that centers around the purchase of his beach house. It’s a hilarious anti-beach read. And, you can meet David Sedaris at Parnassus Books on June 15!
