Pulitzer Prize (Empire Falls) winning author Richard Russo’s ninth novel, Chances Are...is available at House of Books.  Three sixty year old men who were good friends in college meet for a weekend on Martha’s Vineyard.  Still close despite geographical distances and they hold in common not only their school days and the volcanic, rockin’ sixties, but a monumental mystery they have puzzled over since Memorial Day weekend on the Vineyard in 1971.  Russo is renowned for his astute, masterful understanding of community.  Shot through with Russo’s trademark comedy and humanity, Chances Are…also bristles with suspense and menace.  Chances Are…is currently #9 on the New York Times best seller list.

Considering the recent destruction in the Amazon Rain Forest and the loss of countless animals and plants, we are fortunate to have Joel Sartore’s exquisite book The Photo Ark – One Man’s Quest To Document The World’s Animals.  Joel Sartore is a photographer, author, teacher, conservationist and regular contributor to National Geographic magazine. Mr. Sartore has photographed more than 6,000 species for this exquisite book.  It’s impossible to resist looking closely at each photo.  “If you look closely enough a tortoise is as magnificent as a tiger.” – Joel Sartore.  The Photo Ark and the Photo Ark Calendar are available here at House of Books.
