Two well known authors make a come back. Elizabeth Gilbert is creative in essay form, and although I'm a bit tired of her rhetoric, BIG MAGIC has been well received by her many fans.

GOLD FAME CITRUS by Claire Vaye Watkins is a debut novel with a catchy title and a dystopian premise. One reader said "this book may cause an anxiety attack even though it's bleak story is gorgeously written."  Since I'm not a fan of Dystopian themes or anxiety attacks, I may pass....

Big Magic
Big Magic
By Elizabeth Gilbert
In her inspiring new book, the best-selling author of Eat, Pray, Love teaches readers how to nurture their creative side without quitting their day jobs. Gilbert’s honest, humorous essays put a different spin on the artist’s way, cutting to the heart of what it means to express yourself. Your creative jewels don’t have to be great works of art or prize-winning poetry—according to Gilbert, creative living can simply mean being open to new pursuits and following your curiosity wherever it leads. Big Magic is a must-read for anyone with a dream.

Gold Fame Citrus
Gold Fame Citrus
By Claire Vaye Watkins
Watkins established herself as a writer to watch with her eerie 2012 short story collection, Battlebornand she confirms those expectations with a powerful first novel set in a near-future California ravaged by drought. Luz and Ray, an ex-model and an AWOL soldier, hang out in an abandoned LA mansion until they see a chance to escape. In gorgeous prose—already drawing comparisons to such acclaimed writers of the West as Annie Proulx and Joan Didion—Watkins creates a hauntingly believable world and an unforgettable love story.
