The Curse of Oak Island

By Randall Sullivan

Fans of a good treasure hunt will love this book. One of the biggest mysteries in North America is what happened on Oak Island in the 17th century to cause so many people for the next 300 years to dedicate their lives to uncovering the truth. This story has it all: pirates, Templars, Francis Bacon, cutting-edge technology, and fraudsters. Will someone find the treasure or is the island cursed? –Justin, Atlanta

 
 
 
 

Heavy: An American Memoir

By Kiese Laymon

Heavy indeed. A spare and gorgeously written memoir that is heavy in the sense of being powerful, rich, sad, intense. Heavy in the sense of being physically and metaphorically burdened, with the trauma of American racism, with the struggles of poverty, with the complex and often conflicting desires individuals have for themselves, their family and their loved ones. And yet also, heavy: that sweet and awestruck slang used when in the presence of a profound and meaningful truth. –Sara, Atlanta

5 QUESTIONS

WITH ELAN MASTAI

Our booksellers Jenn & Rebecca got the chance to ask one of their favorite authors five questions. Of course they couldn't stop at just five...
Elan Mastai is the author the book All Our Wrong Todays and has been a screenwriter for the past fifteen years.
   

1. The concept for All Our Wrong Todays  is such an original twist on time travel. How did you come up with it?

 
I built a time machine and made some really bad personal decisions. The novel is basically autobiographical. No, look, I love time travel stories but it always bothered me that they rarely take into consideration that the Earth moves. Like, really fast and really far every single minute of the day. Traveling back in time even a short duration also means traveling in space an immensely far distance. I thought it would be fun to imagine a method of time travel that took actual orbital mechanics into consideration. From that super nerdy technical point the novel’s plot—which thankfully has very little to do with orbital mechanics—grew. I’d also been thinking a lot about how our ideas of utopia and dystopia had evolved since I was a kid and when it occurred to me I could combine both ideas, the novel slid into focus.

1. Art history has been crucial to many of your novels, with famous paintings playing key roles. Which Modern Art paintings or artists should readers study to prepare for your new novel?


I’d prefer to preserve the mystery by withholding the names of any specific paintings, but I will tell you that Langdon is a great admirer of Modernists Gaugin and Picasso. In this novel, as he moved into the world of Contemporary Art, Langdon must come down from his ivory tower, set aside his classical predilections, and navigate a landscape of avant-garde works that challenge his very definition of art.
