This beauteous book profiles working distillery cats from around the country. While not as an important job as being a bookstore cat, this book shows the cats in all their glory. There are bonus cocktail recipes, although they have no catnip, so what's the point? [Atticus]

Published: Graywolf Press - October 3rd, 2017

These eight short stories revolve around women, and the violence visited upon women's bodies. The first, "The Husband Stitch," (finalist for the Nebula and Shirley Jackson awards), is a total knockout. The collection is sexy and dark, with elements of fable, horror, comedy, and science fiction. Very queer. Really, it's all those things and it feels as timely as ever. [Tanya]

This book taught me how to touch absence, to feel in a very real way every pain we inflict on each other, to dance with ambivalence, to wonder (ponder) and to wonder (awe). Recommended for fans of Elena Ferrante, especially. - Kenny!


Spineless

Despite being over half a billion years old, we know very little about jellyfish, who are both fascinatingly beautiful and serve as a barometer for the health of our oceans. We might just be able to survive climate change, with a little help from jellyfish. [sweet pea]

If you don't know the razor clam, do you even PNW? This is a delightful read that digs deep into the Siliqua patula, including lore, recipes, and the bivalve's role in our state's identity. The only thing that digs deeper? You, after you've read this book, with shovel in hand, on a freezing Washington beach, ready to clam. [Tanya]

If you call a book a feminist dystopia I will basically always read it. This one, though, is next level. Electric, compelling, rich, nasty, deep, everything. It could have gone on for a million more pages. I wish it had. [Kenny]

Kittehs. As a former historian and art critic, this book gives the kittehs the attention we deserve. So interesting. So striking. So worshipful. Impress me, impressionists! Bow down, Banksy! [Herbert]

I am a sucker for any Mary Oliver book, and in this collection of selected poems she's picked her own best works. It's a unique peek into the mind of one of my favorite poets. The poems are also fluid and beautiful. [Karen]
