SOMETIMES LIFE GETS IN THE WAY!

I have to be away for the next 10 days and will be leaving the store in the capable hands of my staff.

However, it is not possible while I am away to have the store open from 9 am – 5:30 pm every day.

So we have compromised, and the store will be open from Wednesday 19 September to Friday 28 September from 11 am – 4 pm on weekdays – Saturdays we will be open 9 am – 5:30 pm as always. We will be closed on Sundays until December.

We appreciate your understanding, and please be assured that orders will be arriving every day – and your special orders within a week as usual.

NEWS WEEK OF 14 SEPTEMBER 2018

This has been a week of saying goodbye to many of the “summer people” and having time to say hello again to those who are here all year round. And a time at Parry Sound when stock changes and the new fall releases continue to arrive each day.

Some of the most notable this week are -

The Ninth Hour by Alice McDermott is now in paperback. I loved this book! The story of a single mother, and Irish immigrant in Brooklyn in the early 20th century. It is hard to find words to describe this simple, beautiful, complicated and profound little book. Delicious. You will fall in love with the story, the characters, and the author.

 


French Exit is the most recent by Patrick De Witt. Described as a “tragedy of manners” this book is another witty caper by the author of The Sisters Brothers, such a hit a few years ago.

Buffy Sainte-Marie by Andrea Warner is the authorized biography of this Canadian Icon – Folk hero, songwriter, activist and living legend, and the unforgettable voice of my generation.

y450-274.jpg

Dam Busters by Ted Barris tells the story of the Canadian Airmen and the Secret Raid Against Nazi Germany. Based on interviews, personal accounts, flight logs, maps and photographs of the Canadians involved in the night raid against the hydroelectric dams of Germany’s Ruhr River.

A Casualty of War, the 8th in the Bess Crawford Mystery series by mother and son writing pair Charles Todd, is now in paperback. As the Great War nears its end Bess is confronted by a puzzling case of unexpected danger.

We have just received a new selection of Cobble Hill jigsaw puzzles, and more are on the way from Eurographics and Ravensburger.

The arrival of new books each and every day always makes a visit to Parry Sound Books worthwhile!
