4 Books Popular at Powell’s

  • July 29, 2015

Staffers at the Oregon-based indie bookstore regularly share their most-beloved titles. Here’s a look at four of their current faves.












  • Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee. Perched atop nearly everyone’s must-read list, this provocative story revisits Atticus and Scout Finch 20 years after To Kill a Mockingbird. [Click here to read the Independent’s recent essay about the misunderstood Watchman.]

  • Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. A thoughtful, challenging discourse on race, Coates’ new book is already generating passionate discussion and debate.

  • The Festival of Insignificance by Milan Kundera. This wry, dialogue-driven tale of four Parisians is — in Kundera’s typical fashion — deceptively deep in places.

  • All This Life by Joshua Mohr. A fascinating chronicle of seven characters’ lives following a bizarre mass-suicide on the Golden Gate Bridge — and the ill-conceived posting of the event online.
