Tony Cenicola/ The New York Times Noteworthy summer season 2017 titles, in New York, May 23, 2017. Nothing about 2017 looks familiar, not even the lineup of hot summer books.

Sunday, May 28, 2017|2 a.m.

New York City– On a bright afternoon in late April, the day before the opening of Books Are Magic in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, the author Emma Straub was apologetically shooing away prospective clients.

A lady with a dog poked her head in the door, which was still being painted, to say that “there has actually never been more buzz” about a shop opening in the neighborhood. Straub, an owner of the bookstore, told her the location was dog-friendly and invited her to come back when it opened.

The space, a former clothes shop on Smith Street, still smelled like fresh paint and sawdust. By the register were shelves filled with new fiction and nonfiction and a bookcase devoted to eclectic titles released by The New york city Evaluation of Books. Close by, the fiction area held a mix of contemporary works and classics, consisting of two editions of “Middlemarch,” Straub’s preferred novel.

Personnel choices sat on the opposite wall– Straub, 37, had recommended “Magic for Beginners,” a collection of short stories by Kelly Link. Down a couple of stairs, a separate intense, airy space with exposed brick walls, wood rafters and a skylight was filled practically totally with children’s books.

“This is the best part of the store,” Straub stated, as she climbed up into an octagon-shaped wood reading nook for kids.

Cobble Hill has been without a bookstore given that BookCourt, a precious community organization, closed at the end of last year. Neighborhood locals were stunned to lose the store, which had been a neighborhood center and literary gathering area for 35 years.

Straub, who utilized to work as a bookseller there, was specifically troubled. It “was my outright preferred location to be,” she said.

She and her other half, Michael Fusco-Straub, asked if they could take over the shop, but the owners had chosen to sell the buildings. So the couple opened a shop nearby.

Books Are Magic is opening in the midst of a renaissance for independent booksellers. The American Booksellers Association counted 1,775 members around the country in 2016, up from 1,410 in 2010. And Straub is joining a small however growing club of novelists who moonlight as booksellers– their ranks consist of Larry McMurtry, Louise Erdrich, Ann Patchett, Judy Blume and Jeff Kinney.

Straub maintained a couple of touches from BookCourt, including the blond wood racks, which she salvaged. “The whole point of a book shop is to help people find something new,” she said.

In the spirit of driving discovery, we asked Straub and five other authors in the independent book business what they read and advising to clients this summer. Here are their choices.

If I was at the counter of a brand-new book shop, nevertheless, the title I ‘d stack up by the register this summer is J. Robert Lennon’s “Broken River,” which I had the luck of reading in galleys. It’s a tense, surprising thriller, with perverse overtones of the Coen bros variety, however including an enigmatic narrative device, a kind of ‘”haunting of the point-of-view”– one which proves, as ever, that the book can do things absolutely nothing however the novel can do. I’m practically all set to reread it.”
