TBR: TYPE Books Recommends

Edition: Fall 2022 || Flavour: Literary Fiction - Staff Picks

Are you in a reading rut? Do you want to try something different and new, but you're not sure how or where to begin? Do you wish that someone would just hand you a box filled with solutions to all your problems?

If you answered YES to any of the above, you need a dose of ⓉⒷⓇ!

What is ⓉⒷⓇ?

TBR (TYPE Books Recommends) is an extension of our wildly popular MYSTERY BOX service, and features a selection of four newly-published novels read and recommended by trustworthy TYPE booksellers with impeccable taste


A hallucinatory exploration into the origins of humans and human language, which takes place largely in a mysterious anthropology museum that converts into a disco every night

- A brilliantly berserk pastiche novel that explores what drives the creative mind and paints a portrait of a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown/her own self-realization

- A macabre love story - in verse -  of loss, longing, and identity crisis following a poet who resurrects a certain real life pop star from the dead; an absurd and heartfelt examination of celebrity worship

- A hilarious and heartbreaking take on gentrification and the prison and parole system, written in a third person narrative that regularly bursts open into a surging stream of consciousness; imagine Joyce's Ulysses, but with a Black, trans protagonist, and switch out Dublin for Brooklyn

DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Carefully open the sealed box, breathe in that new book smell, prepare to be inspired, challenged, and entertained
