otherworldly BOOKS FOR BATHS

ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SOLITUDE

From the mythical town of Macondo, this fantastical story spans five generations of the odd-fated Buendia family. Their world is everything beautiful, magical, humorous, and tragic - all wrapped up into one. A rare combination of illusion and reality, this tantalizing tale unfolds itself like a vivid half-dream.

UNDER A GLASS BELL AND OTHER STORIES

Thirteen stories combine to create one of Nin's finest collections (of non-erotica that is). Each story is a stylistic sneak peek into the human condition - dark, exquisite, semi-realistic, and purposefully fragmented. Nin is a literary surrealist, so read for the sheer poetry of her words rather than a comprehensive plot line. Favorite stories: The Mouse, Hejda, and The Mohican.

THE HOUSE OF THE SPIRITS 

Part love story, part political drama, this hypnotic saga will take you on a beautifully emotional ride as it uncovers the lives of the Trueba family during a time of profound revolution. It is both captivating and unsettling - weaving together moments of fate, magic, love, and hate, all amongst a background of a tumultuous Chilean history. 

ACORN

Take a strange vacation from the ordinary through Yoko Ono's eyes to see an enchanted world unlike any other. Part poetry, part thought experiment, this collection of one hundred conceptual instructions and drawings will most certainly make bath time extra enjoyable.
