Remember to Come up for Air When You Read 'They Say Sarah'

The only thing that is more of a must-read than this PopMatters review is THEY SAY SARAH itself.

To read They Say Sarah is to understand what it means for a novel to be 'breathtaking'. By the time I'd consumed the first half of the book – in under an hour – I felt like I had barely come up for air. It's only partly due to the vivid sexual passion around which the book is crafted. French wri...

We appreciate you!!

During our staffed hours at Labyrinth, the phones ring continually, such that we often ask for an email as we rush to fill online and gift card orders too. Everything takes longer working in this way, for the few of us who can responsibly be on-site. Yet at the end of the day, all we feel is gratitude: for your patience, your support, your solidarity. And that all of us together are answering a need. This is what print culture means.

By late March his popularity was such that he began to address an audience beyond New York.

I just finished the second Leona Lindberg thriller, Any Means Necessary. I was thrilled to find there are more books in this series, but not in English! Loved the first two! Please publish the rest in English.
