Beard by Matthew Rainwaters

This slim volume is a photographic compilation of epic bearded proportions--men across the country who are proud to rock a face full of hair. Categories include: the best natural full beard, muttonchops, Hungarian/wild west beard, imperial moustache, and Alaskan whaler beard. I'm surprised Santa Cruz didn't make it into Rainwater's beard odyssey.

Room by Emma Donoghue

When you hear the premise of Room, you may cringe. It’s a dark one. The book centers around a 5-year-old and his mother, who have been imprisoned in a man’s backyard for years. But the voice of Jack, the playful, smart protagonist, lifts the story out of darkness and puts it on par with novels like The Lovely Bones. It’s a staggeringly good read, the sort of book you can fall into for hours and hours.

The Pale King by David Foster Wallace

Our poet of the hyper-distracted age, David Foster Wallace, died way too young, but he left the world with the brilliant beginnings of a final novel, The Pale King. First excerpted in the New Yorker, this is a story about a man with perhaps the least interesting job known to humanity—an IRS tax-return agent—who struggles to live in bliss and contentment within the dark void of excruciating boredom.
