(Rock Star and) Brookline Bookseller Mark recommends:
The brainchild of Arts & Architecture editor John Entenza, the Case Study House program defined the golden age of modern architecture, resulting in many of the era's most iconic domiciles. Neutra. Koenig. Eames. Saarinen. All snapped by the sophic eye of Julius Shulman. Herein lies the entire project, spanning 1945-1966, in the prurient splendor that only a bound book can offer.

For reasons unbeknown to me, each fall I reread this handsomely-crafted, sardonic tale of existential disaster by the monarch of fictional memoir, Frederick Exley. Supreme failure at its most entrancing.

Chilean wunderkind Alejandro Zambra's beautiful novel of a writer contemplating the tale of his own life while improvising a bedtime story for his stepdaughter brims with a dark, elegant, and quiet intensity.
