In Time for BEA, Two New Editions of Buzz Books!
More than 30 big fall and winter books for adults are included in our fifth edition of Buzz Books, as we spin off a separate volume of young adult excerpts. Enjoy all the excitement of Book Expo America’s big titles (and free samples) right away by accessing substantial pre-publication excerpts from forthcoming books of note. Now everyone has the same access to the newest voices the publishing industry is promoting for the fall/winter season.
Highly-anticipated debuts include multi-generational family epic We Are Not Ourselves by Matthew Thomas, featured on BEA’s own “buzz books” editors panel alongside another highly-touted debut set for publication in over 30 countries, Jessie Burton’s The Miniaturist. We have Nayomi Munaweera’s novel longlisted for the 2012 Man Asian Literary Prize, Island of a Thousand Mirrors, and Audrey Magee’s The Undertaking, already shortlisted for the Baileys Women’s Prize in Fiction.
Well-established authors such as Tana French, Marlon James, John Scalzi and W. Bruce Cameron are represented with new work, as are excerpts from the last books in two popular series from Lev Grossman and Deborah Harkness.
Our largest selection yet of new nonfiction is jammed with celebrities—Alan Cumming, Billy Idol, and Neil Patrick Harris—as well as investment star, PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel. And there are penetrating real-life stories, from Pulitzer-winning journalist Matt Richtel on the darker side of what our technology is doing to us, and Morten Storm’s personal journey inside al Qaeda and the CIA.
In addition to the excerpts, there’s a comprehensive round-up from Publishers Lunch of dozens of noteworthy fall/winter books to add to your must-have list.
And be sure to read Buzz Books 2014: Young Adult for the best in children’s literature.
