A recent New Yorker article on the emerging field of bibliotherapy notes, “In a secular age . . . reading fiction is one of the few remaining paths to transcendence, that elusive state in which the distance between the self and the universe shrinks.” Our collection of literary fiction aligns perfectly with this idea. New release, ANIMAL WRONGS by Stephen Spotte examines questions of life by focusing on trials of animals in Medieval France. In Gina Yates’ NARCISSUS NOBODY, a woman searches for deeper meaning after a life of unfulfilling relationships. Check out our entire collection here.

THE DOOR TO INFERNA by teen author Rishab Borah explores an alternate universe in which a boy discovers he is royalty.
