New in General Fiction

J.M. Coetzee, Elizabeth Costello- $14 Request

Product Description:
Elizabeth Costello is a humane, moral, and uncompromising creation.
The subject of J.M. Coetzee’s latest work of fiction is an Australian writer of international renown — fêted, studied and honoured. Famous principally for an early novel that established her reputation and from which, it seems, she will never escape, she has reached the stage, late in life, where her remaining function is to be venerated and applauded.
One of a new breed of intellectual nomads, her life has become a series of engagements in sterile conference rooms throughout the world — a private consciousness obliged to reveal itself to a curious public: the presentation of a major award at an American college where she is required to deliver a lecture; a sojourn as the writer-in-residence on a cruise liner during which she encounters a fellow guest lecturer, an African poet also employed to divert the passengers. Then there is a disquieting appearance at a writers’ conference in Amsterdam where she finds the subject of her talk unexpectedly among the audience. She has made her life’s work the study of other people, yet now it is she who is the object of scrutiny. But, for her, what matters is the continuing search for a means of articulating her vision and the verdict of future generations.
J.M. Coetzee’s latest work of fiction offers us a profound and delicate vision of literary celebrity, artistry and the private life of the mind.”

New in Drama

David Mamet, Writings in Restaurants – $14 Request

Book Description:
“Temporarily putting aside his role as playwright, director and screenwriter, David Mamet digs deep and delivers thirty outrageously diverse vignettes. On subjects ranging from the vanishing American pool hall, family vacations, and the art of being a bitch, to the role of today’s actors, his celebrated contemporaries and predecessors, and his underlying commitment to the theater, David Mamet’s concise style, lean dialogue, and gut-wrenching honesty give us a unique view of the world as he sees it.”
