Staff Picks--Carl

Carl is one of our used-book sellers (He's a bookseller who works in the Used Book Cellar. I love that way more than I should.). He also publishes poetry and writes an occasional blog about the UBC that you can read here and here. He also has amazing taste.

Carl's current recommendation is for William H. Gass's Cartesian Sonata and Other Novellas. Here's his favorite passage (from page 29): "All her senses were acute, but she could hear and see and feel most marvelously well: the tremor in her neighbor’s face, the scrape of cloud, the grumble of molasses, like her soul, folding from its bottle..." Read more about the book here and more of Carl's recommendations here.
