Stef Selections

Imagine Me Gone

Adam Haslett

"I picked this book up during an event I was working for the National Book Award Finalists simply because a total stranger came up to me out of nowhere and said "OMG - READ THIS BOOK" and walked away. Her enthusiasm and lack of explanation convinced me. All I have to say is...READ THIS BOOK!"

The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

Junot Díaz

"More like Oscar WOW! This is going to sound corny but I honestly love this book it made me laugh AND cry and that never happens with me! Juno Díaz is a voice of a generation so everyone better take note.."

The Children of Men

P.D James

"A story that has stuck with me for decades and is uncannily relevant in many ways today. Set in a dystopian state, The Children of Men is a story of a world with no children and no future. The tension and suspense throughout the book felt a lot like a Hitchcock/Kubrick kind of combination. In high school, I went everywhere with this book and even ran it over once with my car (it was a mistake!!) and it still found its way back to me. Now that's love. "

The Complete Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway

Ernest Hemingway

"One of my most prized possessions. This complete collection of short stories is perfect for the person that enjoys getting lost in the many characters and emotions Hemingway writes about throughout his writing career. If you haven't already, make sure to read "Hills Like White Elephants"."
