How We're Different

We curate our books by emotion, by interest, and by identity. Books that make you cry, laugh, tremble, lust. Books for the anxious. Coming-of-age stories. Coming of middle-age. Coming-of-old-age! We have shelves curated by other authors, book club shelves, and more. Our inventory is meant to be discovered and savored.
