Sci-Fi/Fantasy | Staff Picks - Catt | General Fiction

I didn't write this book. I stole it...A Parisian bookbinder stumbles across a manuscript containing three stories, each as unlikely as the other.The first, 'The Education of a Monster', is a letter penned by the poet Charles Baudelaire to an illiterate girl. The second, 'City of Ghosts', is a noir romance set in Paris in 1940 as the Germans are invading. The third, 'Tales of the Albatross', is the strangest of the three: the autobiography of a deathless enchantress. Together, they tell the tale of two lost souls peregrinating through time.


An unforgettable tour de force with echoes of Roberto BolaƱo, David Mitchell and Umberto Eco, Crossings is a novel in three parts, designed to be read in two different directions, spanning a hundred and fifty years and seven lifetimes.

Catt: A most unusual, fantastic and epic tale, set across lifetimes, from the South Pacific to France. With two different reading options this is a creative and interactive read. Loved everything about it!
