Looking ahead to next year’s Summer Reading? Take a look at The Millions Fall preview. I’m looking forward to October, when IQ84 by Haruki Murakami and Zone One by Colson Whitehead will be published.
The literary story so far in 2011 has certainly been the posthumous publication David Foster Wallace’s The Pale King — though folks like Tea Obreht, Kate Christensen, and Ann Patchett have grabbed their share of the literary limelight. While the second half of 2011 is unlike to produce a media whirlwind to match the one that accompanied The Pale King this spring (or Freedom last year, for that matter), we will see new books from some heavyweights, including Haruki Murakami, Jeffrey Eugenides (both in October), and Don DeLillo (in November).
But, even as fans look forward to books from these favorites, there will undoubtedly be many new discoveries in the coming months as well, some of which, hopefully, we can introduce you to today.
See the complete list at The Millions : Most Anticipated: The Great Second-Half 2011 Book Preview.
