Former leading New Zealand publisher and bookseller, and widely experienced judge of both the Commonwealth Writers Prize and the Montana New Zealand Book Awards, talks about what he is currently reading, what impresses him and what doesn't, along with chat about the international English language book scene, and links to sites of interest to booklovers.
Do you remember back in March when I was
telling you about the can’t-miss debut novels by authors with highly
anticipated summer books? I was losing my mind over new novels from
writers like Paula Hawkins and Arundhati Roy. Well, now I’m really losing
it over the incredibly exciting books coming out this fall. I mean there
are new books coming from Jennifer Egan and Dan Brown and Alice Hoffman
and Gabrielle Zevin and, well, you get the point. To keep myself
together, I’m revisiting old favorites by authors with big books coming
out this fall.
