Michelle Reviews: The Women in the Castle by Jessica Shattuck

The Women in the Castle is a novel about returning to life following the devastation of WWII. Three women come together in a crumbling Bavarian castle to navigate the new terrain of their lives. The novel skips through time and perspective as these three very different German women come to terms with the choices they made before, during, and after the war.

We here at Cavalier House Books are super excited to be announcing that we are ready to help you with all your audiobook needs! We carry a limited range of audiobooks on CD here in the shop, but several customers have asked if we sell digital audiobooks.

Matthieu Reviews: Devils in Daylight

Out April 25th, Devils in Daylight is one of two newly translated novels by Japanese Author Junichiro Tanizaki. It opens on writer Takahashi taking a call from his admittedly eccentric friend Sonomura regarding a murder set to take place in the early hours of the morning. After much convincing and prodding, Takahashi takes Sonomura up on his offer to observe the murder first hand. Devils in Daylight  has all the characteristics of a Tanizaki story: Psychological acuity, salacious characters, and a penchant for the dark recesses of human consciousness.
