Hey! We’re back! And we’re turning a (virtual) fresh page on the blog with a new series of bookseller Q&A.

For the first question, we’re tweaking the quintessential “What I did on my summer vacation” a bit and asking, “What did you read this summer?”

Our first answer comes from Edgar Davis, who has two books to recommend:

Blonde Faith, by Walter Mosley, is part of the Easy Rawlings Detective Series which includes Devil in a Blue Dress and Little Yellow Dog. This installment deliver the same detailed, imaginative and introspective narration from the story’s hero, Ezekial Rawlings, a private-eye and Korean War veteran who makes his home in the L.A. of the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. While using his detective’s skill  to aid a member of of his close-knit African-American community, Easy’s own life becomes complicated when he’s abandoned by Bonnie, the love of his life.

The Devil’s Storybooks, by Natalie Babbitt, is a delightfully collection of fables written with a rare combination of light-heartedness and sharp wit. The tales are both funny and profound. A good book for anyone from 13 to 30.
