Book of the Month

Each month, we select a brand new book that we love so much that we guarantee you'll love it too—and if you don't, we'll give you your money back. This month, we're recommending The Night Always Comes by Willy Vlautin.

Willy Vlautin's milieu is telling the stories of ordinary people facing extraordinary hardship. His characters are always rendered with great sympathy and a big heart. In The Night Always Comes, we meet Lynette as her world is crumbling around her. She has worked hard, battled many setbacks, righted her life and is working towards the goal of owning a home when the rug gets pulled out from under her. Rather than crumple, she sets off to claim what she feels is hers, by any means necessary.  Seriously.  This is the story of a good person pushed to extremes by the brutalities of gentrification and the American Dream. - kpr
