Staff Picks

The staff here at Sundance Books and Music shares a common passion for reading, listening and discovering. One of the best things about being a member of the Sundance staff is the conversations we get to have with our amazing, diverse customers every day. We love hearing about the books and music that you're excited about, and getting to offer some recommendations of our own too. These exchanges broaden our horizons and help to cultivate the feeling of community that we hold so dear.

Be sure to check back regularly to find out about the books and music that our staff can't wait to share with you. You can also visit the archive for more of our staff picks.

This week, check out selections from Erica, Nilo and Christine:

Erica    Springtime: A Ghost Story Cover Image

Springtime: A Ghost Story:

"The descriptions of lush, colorful gardens and quiet suburbs contrast with the unsettled feelings of the narrator and make the underlying creepiness of the story much stronger."

Heir to the Glimmering World

"Cynthia Ozick writes in smart, tight prose that's well anchored in history. This remarkable novel examines a time and place where women had few choices."

 

NiloThe Vegetarian Cover Image

The Vegetarian

"A disturbing glimpse into the forces that may enter a life without cause or permission. Han Kang takes a simple premise, a woman's choice to stop eating meat, and uses it to deftly illustrate the daily assault our psychological and emotional constructs endure to maintain normalcy in a world filled with prescribed roles and those who yearn to police them."
