As a bookseller, I read a lot of books. I’ve read a whole heap of staff-pick-able ones in the past few months. But this little aliebn has stayed with me since July; I've read and re-read it and found something new every time. Funny, poignant, and earnest, this book about a lonely alien his animal friends offers plenty of insight on what it means to be human.

Franken is an excellent raconteur in this entertaining but highly informative memoir of his political journey to the U.S. Senate.  Providing an account of his excruciatingly drawn out contested run-off election and a sneak peak into the inner workings of government, this funny man shows he is deadly serious about politics, Ted Cruz and Minnesota. Franken for 2020!

I don't quite know exactly what this is but I'm in awe. Biography or Etsy shop? Scrapbook and photo album or feminist polemic? Either way RBG and her legions of admirers win my ardent admiration for her life work and their creativity.

What does Leo Tolstoy have to do with Orange is the New Black? Or Sylvia Plath with The Bachelor? Maris Kreizman's juxtapositions of great literature with pop culture icons are funny and clever, but also intuitively true on a deeper level the stories told through "high" and "low" culture may not be that different at their core. A great gift for the film, TV, and book lovers on your list.
