Getting my hands on the good stuff

January 17, 2013 § 1 Comment

There’s a lot coming out in 2013 that I want to read. Some of the books are receiving wall-to-wall plaudits already (Tenth of December by George Saunders). In no particular order, here’s a selection of books I’m looking forward to in the first half of this year:

France Daigle, For Sure

Nicholas Royle, First Novel

Lisa Moore, Caught

Rawi Hage, Carnival

Taiye Selasi, Ghana Must Go

Meg Wolitzer, The Interestings

Zachary Karabashliev, 18% Gray

Sam Byers, Idiopathy

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Americanah

DW Wilson, Ballistics

Sam Lipsyte, The Fun Parts

Rachel Kushner, The Flamethrowers

The Flamethrowers: A Novel

Helen DeWitt, Your Name Here

Scott Esposito and Lauren Elkin, The End of Oulipo?

Pierre Michon, The Eleven

Owen King, Double Feature

The list could have been a lot, lot longer, but all that copying and pasting of links eats into good reading time…
