VIB (Very Impressive Book) Picks

Every now and then we encounter a new book that we’re so excited about we want to shout it from the rooftops, so we've created a special tag to distinguish it from the rest: TC VIB (very impressive book)! That means it’s a true stand-out in a season of many excellent and compelling new books. 

 

Our latest selection is: 

The World Before Us by Aislinn Hunter

"This otherworldly yet profoundly grounded novel had me enthralled and left me deeply moved, mildly puzzled and anxious to put it in the hands of other readers so I can talked about it. Jane Standen, an archivist for a soon to be shuttered museum is haunted by a tragedy from her teens and obsessed with a disappearance that occurred a century ago. As she looks into what happened to a young women who vanished from an insane asylum one summer day in the late 19th Century a collection of spirits connected to the mystery oversee Jane's progress. The layers of The World Before Usunfold with shimmering prose. A brilliant and complex endeavor. Bravo Aislinn Hunter!" ~ Cathy Langer, lead buyer at Tattered Cover
