Once upon a time I knew what books were coming out when, and what the author's tour schedule looked like before they did (not really, but I was a bit of a go-getter when it came to stalking the websites of places that host the big guns here in Southern California). Then I had a kid and my concern has been more about when I can go to bed, rather than go to a reading.
I know. I know.
Anyway, I finally started digging around and found a few favorite authors that have some books coming out this fall and thought I'd share, just in case you live in under rock like I apparently am.
John Irving, Avenue of Mysteries (11/3)
David Mitchell, Slade House (10/27)
Salman Rushdie, Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights (9/8)
Margaret Atwood, The Heart Goes Last (9/29)
Lauren Groff, Fates and Furies (9/15)
Colum McCann, Thirteen Ways of Looking (10/13)
Marilyn Robinson, The Givenness of Things (10/27)
Isabel Allende, The Japanese Lover (11/3)
Now, the real question is if I can wait until my birthday/Christmas for most of these....
