...The Confessions of Max Tivoli

by Andrew Sean Greer, released in 2004.

One of my personal favorites, great for endless re-reads. When he wrote this, the author was unaware of the (now well-known) short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. But this story also focuses on a character who ages backwards, it just does so better than Button, both the movie and the story.

I'm a very cynical person, I don't cry at books and movies, but I find this one absolutely heartbreaking in the best, most beautiful way possible.

Welcome to Bath Book Shop's new blog!

Hello, readers.

Everyone has a blog, right? And the blogs about books always tell you about the new ones, the shiny ones, the ones you can find in the paper or on the bestseller lists already. Our goal here is to introduce you to some older releases that you might have missed-- maybe they had smaller releases, or are by international authors, or maybe you just weren't paying attention the first time around.

Anyway, we hope to introduce you to some quality reading material you didn't know about before.
