If you are really savouring your latest treasure, don’t read this. In fact, don’t read this if you are really concentrating on staying in the moment.
If however, like the rest of us, you are always tempted by the next big thing (whatever your taste), you may be interested in a few of the big names whose newest, best-est books have been dangled in front of me over the last few days:
Anita Diamant – Day After Night (September simultaneous US & Australian release)
Matthew Reilly – Five Greatest Warriors (November hardback)
Muriel Barbery – The Gourmet (August). This has been translated into English and is being rushed to our shores after the phenomenal success all over the world of her literary pot boiler, Elegance of the Hedgehog
Dan Brown – The Lost Symbol (September 15, world-wide release, with a print run of 6.5 million. Seriously)
Jonathan Tropper – This is Where I Leave You (September)
John Grisham – Ford County (November)
Sadly, there is no Australian release yet slated for David Liss’ The Devil’s Company. If you want it, leave me a message here and I will hunt it down for you.
