Rowell's take on the "Chosen One" magician story is a great one. Flipping between many unique points of view, Rowell creates some amazing dramatic irony that keeps you turning the pages. I was incredibly sad when this book ended. I wanted to spend way more time with these awesome characters in their beautifully crafted world.

Pure magic. Shakespeare, comic books, Star Trek, and the apocalypse all swirl together into one of my favorite books of the year. Mandel deftly weaves us through multiple characters in the past and present in this strangely real yet fantastically imaginative tale. And unlike many of its fellow world-ender novels, Mandel paints us a future full of hope and new beginnings.

One of the most influential novel's I've ever read. The comic book aspect drew me in, but I the depth of the characters gave it the lasting impact. We are all searching for oursevles. We all have a secret identity. We are all trying to escape something. We all want to change the world. Chabon's characters struggle along with the rest of us with the medium of comic books as their backdrop. One of the most impressive feats is Chabon's ability to verbally paint for us what his characters are painting in their own fictional world within world. They say that readers of fiction have a greater ability to empathize with the people. You can't read this book without feeling empathy. You can't help but realize how much you and these people share in your own ways. "Forget about what you are escaping from. Reserve your anxiety for what you are escaping to."

One Plus One incorporates all things Moyes is excellent at. With a main character you can't help but love and feel bad for aside a main character you want to smack across the face, you'll laugh the entire way through. Don't worry, though, because these dynamic relationships are much more than just laughs. Moyes has many enticing books, but this one takes complexity, love, and life's journeys to a whole new level.

Published: Doubleday Books - October 6th, 2015

A dystopian fantasy that completely deconstructs the history of the world in an amazing way while maintaining a striking cultural critique on our ideas of masculinity, money, blood and love. With an almost Danielewski approach towards using the novel as an artpiece, Dodson has created an immensely stark world and has proved himself as one of the most imaginative writers that I've encountered in a very long time.

This book is action packed. A page turner in which some beloved characters redeem themselves, some perish while evil characters ebb and flow in triumph and despair too. This has to be the most entertaining part of the book: the way that Jacques is able to deliver a story that is devastating, and yet in the end, hopeful. It is a strong testament to the fantasy novel, especially one made for kids of all ages. There are battles and strategy and adventure; everything needed to keep a kid entertained and looking for more to read.

Ocean at the End of the Lane was the most gripping novel on my 2015 list, occupying my time on two flights to and from Orange County. Complicated and heart-wrenching, it had me squirming in my seat. I found myself horrified and in awe of this young boy whose innocence allows him to recognize a danger that no "grown-up" can while leaving him feeling incapable of confronting its authority. Sitting on that plane, I felt both enlightened and powerless.

This book knows what it means to be a child.

Helen Oyeyemi is a masterful writer-poetic, witty, and captivating. Each of the short stories in this collection is tentatively connected by characters and themes of locks, keys, doors and books, yet each also seems to create its own secret world. In each new world, I was immediately entranced by its mystery and, inevitably, its poignant tragedy.

Published: Del Rey Books - May 19th, 2015

Uprooted is an unapologetic fairy tale brimming with enchantments, sorcery, and foreboding evil forces; reading it reminded me of why I fell in love with magic. Like my teenage self, Agnieszka is inexperienced, completely naive and a total klutz, yet she kicks some wizarding butt as she learns to trust herself and outsmarts some really pompous bullies. This book has a bit of everything a good fantasy should: undying frienships, gory swordfights, and sparks-flying romance - yes, things get a little steamy - so read it and let's talk about it! But seriously, it's good.

Beautiful, heartbreaking, a must-read. Told through the perspective of a child forced to navigate a dangerous and confusing world, this story is about discovering truth in a world that lies in many languages. Like children learn a first language, some things are understood without needing to be expalined. This is how we learn that some things are magical, no matter the explanation behind them. This is how we learn that love is dangerous, and also our only hope for survival.

Not simply an insightful reimagining of a biblical figure, this is a great novel in its own right. Framed in a beautifully crafted historic setting, fleshed with brokenly human characters and propelled by a gripping plot of war and politics, this is a story of how one man lead a struggling nation of farmers to become a kingdom feared by their neighbors. It is a story of great love and great loss, great faith and great failings. I haven't stopped thinking about it.

With eerie and visceral prose, Ottessa Moshfegh latches onto the fundamental human experience of realizing that you are a dark, fragile, and volatile creature deep inside. Most of us experience this realization in solitude, when we stare nakedly into a mirror and examine our deepest fears, embarrassments, and imperfections. Eileen dwells in this awareness. This might seem an un-endearing quality for a first-person narrative, but as Eileen seeks human connection, she reveals to us an honest, and not hopeless, glimpse of our race in all its desperate wanting.

Though only a few pages each, I haven't been able to read two of these stories consecutively. Like eating a hearty meal, reading one of these stories requires that you sit back a while upon finishing. Not to say that they are heavy or tedious, rather that they leave a rich, lingering flavor that is best appreciated when allowed to unfold slowly. Great for a long train ride or a quiet evening.

Steve Krakow and Ray Robertson

Join us at The Book Cellar for a special conversation between Steve Krakow, author of The Secret History of Chicago Music and Ray Robertson, author of The Lives of the Poets (With Guitars). Conversation will be moderated by longtime music critic at the Chicago Reader Philip Montoro.

About Steve Krakow:

Steve Krakow ("Plastic Crimewave") is a writer, illustrator, and musician. He is the editor of Galactic Zoo Dossier, founder of the Million Tongues Festival, and frontman for Plastic Crimewave Syndicate. He draws the "Secret History of Chicago Music" comic for the Chicago Reader and WGN. Krakow also plays in bands and has toured internationally for nearly twenty years.

About My Kind of Sound: The Secret History of Chicago Music:

My Kind of Sound compiles more than a decade worth of “The Secret History of Chicago Music,” the illustrated column by Steve Krakow (“Plastic Crimewave”) that has been printed bi-weekly in the Chicago Reader since 2005. There is much to discover in these stories; amidst the slighted fame, botched contracts, overdoses, and break-ups, Krakow spotlights the glory that exists in making music. This compendium features Chicago musicians who somehow haven't gotten their just dues.

"The Secret History of Chicago Music has developed into an important study of the obscure blues, jazz, rock, funk, soul, folk, R&B, and punk musicians from Chicago’s rich and diverse musical history."
—Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago

About Ray Robertson:

Ray Robertson is the author of the novels "I Was There the Night He Died, Home Movies, Heroes, Moody Food, Gently Down the Stream, What Happened Later, " and "David," as well as two collections of non-fiction: "Mental Hygiene: Essays on Writers and Writing" and, most recently, "Why Not? Fifteen Reasons to Live," which was short-listed for the Hilary Weston Prize for non-fiction and long-listed for the Charles Taylor Prize for non-fiction. He lives in Toronto.

About Lives of the Poets (with Guitars):

Robertson brings a good ear and plenty of critical insight to essays aimed at helping readers discover new favorites or hear more familiar music from a fresh perspective. The book features an eclectic selection of artists, from the much-beloved (Little Richard, the Ramones) to the legendary and seminal (Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Gram Parsons) to the truly obscure (fellow Canadian Willie P. Bennett).

**OFFSITE** Chef Eric Ripert @ Nico Osteria

Join us at Nico Osteria with chef, Eric Ripert, presenting his new book, 32 Yolks.

THIS IS A TICKETED EVENT! YOU CAN FIND YOUR TICKET HERE!

About Eric Ripert:

Eric Ripert is the chef and co-owner of the New York restaurant Le Bernardin. The celebrated restaurant has held three stars from the Michelin Guide since its inception in 2005, ranks 21 on the S. Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants list and was most recently rated New York City’s top restaurant for food and service by the Zagat 2015 guide. The restaurant has maintained a consistent “29” food rating, the highest in the city, from the guide since 2010, and has upheld a four-star review from The New York Times for over two decades. It has never dropped a star throughout five reviews, and is the only restaurant to maintain four stars for that length of time. In September 2011, Ripert unveiled the next chapter in the restaurant’s history: a significant redesign from Bentel & Bentel that earned Le Bernardin a James Beard Award for “Best Restaurant Design” in 2012, followed by a 2013 “Outstanding Restaurateur” award for co-owner Maguy Le Coze. In September 2014, Ripert and Le Coze opened Aldo Sohm Wine Bar, a casual spot just steps from Le Bernardin named for their acclaimed wine director, and Le Bernardin Privé, a dynamic private events space upstairs.

Additionally, Ripert has partnered with The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company to open Blue in Grand Cayman, is Vice Chairman of the board of City Harvest, and is a recipient of the Legion d’Honneur, France’s highest honor.  He has hosted YouTube’s “On the Table,” which debuted on the RESERVE CHANNEL in July 2012, and was also the host of his own Emmy-award winning PBS TV series “Avec Eric,” which will return for a third season in winter 2015. Ripert is the author of five cookbooks, including Avec Eric (2010), On the Line (2008), A Return to Cooking (2002), Le Bernardin – Four Star Simplicity (1998) and most recently, My Best: Eric Ripert (2014), an illustrated recipe guide to 10 of his signature dishes.

About 32 Yolks:

There are few chefs in the world who have accomplished more than Eric Ripert. Since named its executive chef, Le Bernardin has maintained a three-star Michelin rating and is the only restaurant to have earned five consecutive four-star ratings from The New York Times. Ripert himself has received four James Beard Awards including "Outstanding Chef of the Year" and "Best Chef in New York," starred in three seasons of the Emmy Award-winning Avec Eric on PBS-TV and the Cooking Channel, and is a regular guest on Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown on CNN. Before all of this and even before he knew how to make a proper hollandaise sauce, Eric Ripert was a young boy in the South of France who found solace from a difficult childhood in his mother’s kitchen. Ripert’s debut memoir 32 Yolks takes readers from Antibes, France, where he was born, and Andorra, a small country over the Spanish border, to some of the most celebrated and demanding kitchens in Paris, serving under legendary chefs such as Joel Robuchon and Dominique Bouchet. Like Jacques Pepin's classic memoir The Apprentice, Eric Ripert's is a coming of age story about how he learned to cook and finally found his place in the kitchen.
