Brett's Favorite Books of 2018



Brett is the co-owner/operator of Two Dollar Radio Headquarters, our bookstore/bar/cafe in beautiful Columbus, OH. A man of exceptional taste and talent, check out his book recommendations for 2018:

 

 

 

Wild Milk by Sabrina Orah Mark
Synopsis: Wild Milk is like Borscht Belt meets Leonora Carrington; it’s like Donald Barthelme meets Pony Head; it’s like the Brothers Grimm meet Beckett in his swim trunks at the beach. In other words, this remarkable collection of stories is unlike anything else you’ve read.

 

Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata
Synopsis: Convenience Store Woman is a bewitching portrayal of contemporary Japan through the eyes of a single woman who fits in to the rigidity of its work culture only too well.

 

Cherry by Nico Walker
Synopsis: Walker's debut novel concerns an unnamed narrator's time in college, as a soldier during the War in Iraq, and life as a drug addict and bank robber after returning from the war during the midst of the American Opioid epidemic.

 

If They Come for Us by Fatima Asghar
Synopsis: From a co-creator of the Emmy-nominated web series Brown Girls comes an imaginative, soulful debut poetry that collection captures the experiences of being a young Pakistani Muslim woman in contemporary America.

 

Liartown by Sean Tejaratchi (an annual favorite)
Synopsis: Welcome to LiarTown! A place where reality is skewered with a hilarious combination of comedic genius and graphic design wizardry. There’s an Apple Cabin Foods on every corner, and your favorite Corduroy Porn mags are always in stock. LiarTown is a convulsively funny compendium of Sean Tejaratchi’s brilliant takedowns of popular culture and societal trends.

 

 

 *Note: (almost) all links direct you straight to the publisher because we support indie culture and shopping small. If that doesn't work for you, you can get these books from a local bookstore or our TDRHQ online store.
