Deal Of The Week!!!
Come in to Chop Suey Books between July 9th and 15th to get a great deal on Colleen Curran's debut novel Whores on the Hill. For only $2, you can take home a barely used copy of this great summer read. Thisbe and her two friends, Astrid and Juli, are 15 year olds enrolled at Milwaukee's Sacred Heart Holy Angels in the early 1980s. The fact that the school is set on a hill, combined with the young girls penchant for short plaid skirts, boys in fast cars, parties at the lake, and casual sex, gives these girls there moniker, one which they accept with indifference. The narrative makes for a quick read, despite the in-depth and sometimes terrifying expose of an adolescent girl's life. For only $2, you can't lose!
Listen to a great review on NPR here.
We are currently overrun with great fiction, so keep an eye out for our Deal of the Week reads. The title will change every Wednesday, but the great price won't!
