by Ernest Hemingway

Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald and T.S. Eliot. What really happened with these beloved expatriate writers during the 20th century? Well, Hemingway will explain just that. Published three years after his death, this novel recounts his time in Paris, from the first piece of writing he ever sold to how he and the others, dubbed the “Lost Generation,” first met. If you’re looking for a firsthand account of what France was like in the 1920s, this may be the book for you.

by David Nicholls

A story of friendship and growing up, One Day is nothing like most stories. Each chapter takes place on the same exact day each year: July 15, for 20 years.

by Mahbod Seraji

In this book, author Mahbod Seraji paints a tragic picture of what life was like in 1973 Iran.
