Fall 2014 reading list, recent reviews



I just received a new batch of books from my editor at about.com and thought I'd share what's on deck and link to some of my recent reviews.

I just finished my review of Michel Faber's The Book of Strange New Things and think it might be one of my favorites of the year. I've got a signed UK first coming my way soon and will do a post devoted to the book once the review goes live. I'm currently finishing up a review of Donal Antrim's The Emerald Light in the Air as well, which is also very good.

Coming up:

J by Howard Jacobson
The Assassination of Margaret Thatcher by Hilary Mantel

The Dog by Joseph O'Neill
Nora Webster by Colm Toibin

I've also got my eye out for Shark by Will Self, How to be Both by Ali Smith and The Laughing Monsters by Denis Johnson.

Recently, I've reviewed some great novels (and some not-so-great ones). Here are few links if you're interested... click around and let me know what you think. More rare books next week.
