October is always an especially exciting month in the bookseller world, not only because of all the new books being published but also because it’s the month when the books in the Best American Series® arrive in our store!
This year’s guest editors are authors particularly well-known to and well-loved by Broadway Books denizens: for short stories, Anthony Doerr; for essays, Rebecca Solnit; for science and nature writing, Sy Montgomery; for travel writing, Alexandra Fuller; for mystery writing, Jonathan Lethem; for food writing, Samin Nosrat; for science fiction and fantasy, Carmen Maria Machado, for “nonrequired reading,” Edan Lepucki; for sports writing, Charles P. Pierce; and for comics, Jillian Tamaki. [The Best American Poetry book is published by a different publisher and came out in September, with Major Jackson as the editor.]
Lots of delicious pieces on all kinds of topics to dip into — and a great way to discover new authors!
