Acclaimed authors and enduring characters. Dive into the latest from Toni Morrison to Haruki Murikami to Margaret Atwood. While their works of literary fiction may be very different, these critically lauded authors share an uncanny ability to serve up complex, absorbing novels that are rich and multilayered. Indeed, there's something for every kind of reader to discover in our pages of literary fiction—from the bare, arid prose of McCarthy to the lush magical realism of Marquez, the emotional dynamics of family to the psychological upheaval of war. Fiction Books grab hold of our imaginations and keeps us close. And in the end, we—their fortunate readers—are the ones quite unready and unwilling to let go.
A frightening future! No matter how many times you've read Ray Bradbury's moving novel of censorship and salvation through books, there's always something new to discover in his rich and poetic prose. Fahrenheit 451 tells the tale of Guy Montag, a book-burning fireman who undergoes a personal transformation when his marriage starts to dissolve and next-door-neighbor suddenly disappears. Bradbury paints a chilling portrait of a time when censorship goes wild and book-burning becomes a way of life. (P.S. - Fahrenheit 451 is the temperature at which paper will automatically ignite). Riveting and still relevant many decades after publication, this story is a superb reminder of why we love and need books!
