Barbarian Lost by Alexandre Trudeau To this day, China remains an enigma. Ancient, complex and fast moving, it defies easy understanding. The Ottawa Writers Festival welcomes Alexandre Trudeau on September 13th when this new book will release. Visit Perfect Books to pre-order your copy and purchase a ticket for the event.   Ever since he was a boy, Alexandre Trudeau has been fascinated by this great county. Recounting his experiences in the China of recent years, Trudeau visits artists and migrant workers, townspeople and rural farmers.
The Girls by Emma Cline Northern California, during the violent end of the 1960s. At the start of summer, a lonely and thoughtful teenager, Evie Boyd, sees a group of girls in the park, and is immediately caught by their freedom, their careless dress, their dangerous aura of abandon.
Van Gogh's Ear by Bernadette Murphy On a dark night in Provence in December 1888 Vincent van Gogh cut off his ear. It is an act that has come to define him.
A Hero of France by Alan Furst 1941. The City of Light is dark and silent at night. But in Paris and in the farmhouses, barns, and churches of the French countryside, small groups of ordinary men and women are determined to take down the occupying forces of Adolf Hitler.
Real Food Fake Food by Larry Olmstead You’ve seen the headlines: Parmesan cheese made from wood pulp. Lobster rolls containing no lobster at all. Extra-virgin olive oil that isn’t.

Local Authors

pb_authorWe are happy to support local authors who have self-published their work. To that end we've created a special area in the store that is dedicated to local, self-published writers.

Before we begin, we need to make sure for both of us that your book fits with our market so drop by with a copy of your book. Please read this advice and insight from a long standing bookseller that may be of some help. (Insights on the book biz) Michael Neill is the owner of Mosaic Books in Kelowna, B.C.

Our consignment contract is for four months and Perfect Books receives 40% of the retail price of the book. A $25 fee covers our costs of managing the book in our store AND entitles you to one in-store signing at a mutually agreeable date. (Drop by the store and pick up a copy of our consignment brochure for details)

If the book does well we will be calling you to restock the item. And at the end of the four month term we can settle up and discuss whether our store is the right place for your work.

Please contact Jim Sherman, the owner, for further information.
