Now that we’re 3 days into 2007, it’s time to take a look at what books are being published this year. Max at the Millions has a comprehensive list of upcoming books (plus a lovely redesign). Scott at Conversational Reading has another list and the New York Daily News has a more commercial list, thought they include some good stuff too.
Myself? I’m looking forward to the new Rupert Thomson novel I mentioned before. Ryszard Kapuscinski has a new book called Travels with Herodotus, about his first forays beyond Poland. Apparently he carries around a volume of Herodotus on all of his travels—this makes me love him. There’s also William Vollmann’s new book of non-fiction Poor People and the new Haruki Murakami coming this summer. I also want to get back to some non-fiction that I didn’t get to read last year, as well as a lot of older books, including more Pynchon, Delilo and Achebe. What are you looking forward to reading most?
