Fall is always an exciting time for new books. This year two of my favorite authors, Michael Chabon and Barbara Kingsolver, have new titles coming out and I am so excited! But wait...there's more! I loved Ken Follett's Fall of Giants and have been eagerly awaiting the sequel for two long years. My patience will finally be rewarded this September. Get on the request lists now; these titles are sure to be popular!
Though he has never (in my opinion) lived up to the genius displayed in the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, I still love Michael Chabon's work. His newest, centering on an independent record store in his hometown of Berkeley, is already garnering rave reviews. Booklist describes it as a "magnificently crafted, exuberantly alive, emotionally lustrous, and socially intricate saga."
