Book notes

On March 18, Random House will release “The View from the Seventh Layer,” the latest story collection from Little Rock author Kevin Brockmeier. The book includes “The Human Soul as a Rube Goldberg Device,” an homage to the choose-your-own-adventure novels, and “Father John Melby and the Ghost of Amy Elizabeth,” a story about a pastor touched by a spirit that transforms his formerly dull sermons into crowd pleasers.

Down the road: Toby Press will put out Donald Harington's latest novel, “Farther Along,” in May. The book follows a chief curator of a museum who, with the help of a book on the life and culture of a vanished tribe of Indians knows as Bluff-dwellers, leaves his job and society to live in the wilderness of the Ozark mountains.

Lorenzen and Co. Booksellers, the venerable Little Rock used bookstore, is having a going out of business sale. All stock is 20 percent off. The store is on the back side of the Tanglewood shopping center, at 7509 Cantrell Road.
