Few things are simultaneously as tight-lipped and wildly ostentatious as the world of fashion. But if you're anything like us, one glimpse sends your voyeuristic tendencies spiraling. This month, the plebeians can peek into the beautiful madness through three new tomes.

If you can't get people in a book club to talk about literature in a sustained and involved way, where can you hope for a good literary discussion outside a classroom?

Examining Language in 'Brief Wondrous Life Of Oscar Wao'

Led Black | Posted 11.25.2012 | Books
Led Black

The term "un pie aqui y uno alla" (one foot here and one foot there) succinctly describes the bi-national existences led by many of the Dominicans and Dominican-Americans in the United States.

I'm not a huge geek, as far as I know. I'm an avid reader, yes, but after I read The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, I only knew two things for certain: 1) I believe Junot Díaz to be a genius and a beast, and 2) I only caught 1/4th of the novel's pop culture references, tops.

The Next HuffPost Book Club Pick

CONFESSION: When I interviewed Junot Díaz in June at BEA (Book Expo America, for non-book industry folks), I had not read anything that he'd written. I knew, of course that he'd written a book that had won the Pulitzer Prize and was read highly among hipsters and intellectuals.

What Exactly Is The Night Circus?

Tara Newman | Posted 08.29.2012 | Books
Tara Newman

Is The Night Circus a novel of surrealism? A magical jaunt? A love story? None of the above or all three? It's hard to tell, isn't it? It's been more than a week since I finished and I still have a hard time wrapping my hands around the story.

I don't know what it's like to go to war, but I know what it's like to stay home from war. I know what it's like to watch your husband on the tarmac---heave over, putting his hands on his knees only lifting his head to sob on my shoulder before he takes off.
