Too Many Books

There seems to be a glut of books by big named authors this Fall. Wait, haven’t we already read this before? Right, the Los Angeles Times put out an article several weeks ago and now the New York Times has a similar one. The same authors are mentioned again: Thomas Pynchon, Michael Connelly, John le Carré, Cormac McCarthy, Charles Frazier, Alice Munro, etc. Do you think the NYT cribbed from the previous article? I shouldn’t complain I suppose, since they are covering books, but it still seems sloppy to me.
