About John: John is co-owner of Cavalier House Books with his wife Michelle. He handles book fairs and the business side of things, and he has a hand in just about everything that goes on at the store. John is a fan of George Orwell and Ray Kurzweil. He’d rather read a book about the science of sound than a New York Times bestselling novel and he generally prefers his books steeped in fact and very dry. He starts way more books than he finishes but tends to overly enjoy every book he reads.


About Michelle: Michelle is co-owner of Cavalier House Books with her husband, John, and she is also the buyer for the store. Michelle is a reader of books and petter of cats who counts among her favorite authors Kurt Vonnegut, John Irving, and Gabriel Garcia Marquez. She hates Hemingway, loves Bukowski, and generally prefers a book in which bad things happen. Ironically, she also enjoys children's books and middle grade literature.



About Matthieu: Matthieu has been a bookseller at Cavalier House since October 2016 and is usually reading something from Japan or Norway. His other role at Cavalier House is website coordinator. If he had a cathedral dedicated to his favorite authors, Karl Ove Knausgaard, John Steinbeck, and Haruki Murakami might be featured on the stained glass windows. Additionally, he knows way too much about authors he's never read.
