Untitled design (3).png

Every month we choose a book we think you'll love and pair it with a glass of something tasty to match, so you can have the most immersive reading experience. Buy a copy of our Book of the Month in store or order online and come in and collect it and get a Whitebox Cocktail Hippy Fizz or Karma Gingerella.
 

THE CRANE WIFE BY CJ HAUSER

This brilliantly warm, witty and wise collection of essays has all the warmth of Natasha Lunn's Conversations on Love and the emotional depth of Emilie Pine's Notes To Self. Each essay uses CJ Hauser's own life experience, intergrated with cultural examinations - from X Files to Daphne Du Maurier - to interogate her emotional life, and to allow the reader to interrogate their own. You'll reevaluate things in your own life, and feel affirmed in how you already feel. We can't stop thinking about this frank and intimate collection is a memoir told through essays about living life outside of others' and your own expectations.
