Texas' largest independent bookstore, located in Austin, world capital of weird. More: bookpeople.com
"The second surprise (of this book) is seeing how the world outside of my window could just as easily become the soft apocalypse that is the world in California. It doesn’t take a meteor strike or dirty bomb, just let the economic downturn slowly erode our neighborhoods, chipping away at infrastructure and family alike. Then, the privileged few, grown accustomed to their standard of living, retreat behind walls of corporate communities. The only sensible thing for everyone else to do is either survive in the bones of the great cities and try to rebuild or set out on their own in the wilds. People facing such dire circumstances will always act unpredictably, either to protect what little they have or seize what’s there for the taking, but Cal and Frida make for relatable and sensible characters to follow, even when other characters don’t behave.”
- Alex

If you follow The Colbert Report, you know Stephen Colbert is recommending CALIFORNIA by Edan Lepucki (and he wants you to buy it from an indie). Alex, our Floor Manager, also highly recommends this novel which he describes as “A new kind of apocalypse”. 
Read Alex’s review over on our blog. We’re taking pre-orders of California right over here.

Thank you, as always, for supporting your local, independent bookstore!
