Aurorarama by Jean-Christophe Valtat (Melville House) $25.95 – Don’t miss this French author coming to Quimby’s on Wed, Sept 22nd, 7pm. Set in the glittering Arctic city of “New Venice,” Aurorarama imagines an intricate “steampunk” society populated with anarchists, hypnotists, rock stars, drug-addled bohemians, dapper secret police, and a secret society of subterranean garbage collectors. French author Jean-Christophe Valtat has drawn on a wealth of research about Arctic exploration, Victorian mysticism, and 19th-century technology to create a truly unforgettable literary adventure tale that calls to mind Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, the graphic-novel classics of Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman, and such genre-bending literary sensations as Susanna Clarke’s Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell or Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials series.
How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu (Pantheon) $24.00 – Funny, poetic and reminiscent of Jasper Fforde.
