Recommended by Libby V: I feel like I will never read another book as good as this one. It was truly masterfully written. Not to mention that Anne Milano Appel did a phenomenal job translating this work from Italian to English. Everything about this book is artfully done and I honestly cannot recommend it enough.
Recommended by Riley F & Chloe N: R: This book is scary and thrilling and fun! I immediately knew it was going to be my next staff pick because it is WILD! I didn’t want to put it down.
C: It’s rare to find books that truly challenge and disturb your perspective, but this book THOROUGHLY delivers. Helena and Barry were such dynamic protagonists and I appreciated the switches in perspective between the two.
Recommended by Daniel K: This Greco-Faustian tale about architects and obsession is itself a labyrinth, disorienting and full of strange tricks (in a good way!) This book of contrasts and parallels is drawn in only two colors, which themselves are important in telling the story, making clea visually that which is left uncertain in the text. Striking in form and creative in content, this is ultimately a story of how love can both save and doom.
Recommended by Dan B: Simply put, this is a masterpiece. Some of my favorite writing in along time. This is really one story in three parts. The reader follows a mother as she attempts to find her daughter in a world seemingly hell-bent on killing her. It’s also so much more—stunning allegory, writing of the highest craftsmanship, characters you can believe in. One of my all-time favorites.
