Largehearted WORD Books of the Week - February 8th, 2012

In the Largehearted Word series, the staff of Brooklyn's WORD bookstore highlights several new books released this week.

WORD is an independent neighborhood bookstore in Greenpoint, the northernmost neighborhood of Brooklyn, that will celebrate its fifth anniversary in March 2012. Our primary goal is to be whatever our community needs us to be, which currently means carrying a lot of paperback fiction (especially classics), cookbooks, board books, and absurdly cute cards and stationery. In addition, we're fiends for a good event, from the classic author reading and Q&A to potlucks and a basketball league (and anything set in a bar). We're a small operation, just 1000 square feet and four people, but we read too much, so it all works out. If a weekly dose of WORD here isn't enough for you, follow us on Twitter: @wordbrooklyn.

WORD also hosts the monthly Largehearted Lit reading series, featuring authors who participated in this blog's Book Notes series and musical guests.


Vaclav and Lena
by Haley Tanner

One of Jenn's favorite debut novels of 2011, now in paperback.


A Widow's Story
by Joyce Carol Oates

One of Stephanie's favorite memoirs of 2011, now in paperback.


History of a Pleasure Seeker
by Richard Mason

A brand new novel from the acclaimed author of The Drowning People, sure to bring out your inner hedonist.


The Monster Returns
by Peter McCarty

What to do when a monster comes back? Throw him a surprise party, naturally.
