Mink River by Brian Doyle (OREGON STATE UNIVERSITY PRESS)

Tuesday • August 2 • 1pm

Bellevue Store

Feed your body and your mind. Bring your lunch and join us on the first Tuesday of each month at 1pm to talk books at the Book Bites Book Club.

Blending the fantastical with the natural in a lyrical voice reminiscent of oral storytelling traditions, Brian Doyle's stunning first novel brings a small fictional town on the Oregon coast to life through the jumbled lives and braided stories of its people. In its pages, readers become privy to love affairs and brawls, investigate crimes and unravel mysteries, meet a silent doctor and a talking crow, and share the laughter, tears, joy, and pain of countless other souls. The tale of a town, a culture, and region, Mink River will leave readers reticent to ever leave.

And behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway: a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who tumble headfirst into love. But unbeknownst to them, only one can be left standing, forcing the game to proceed as the fates of all involved hang in the balance.
