Who says hot reads have to end when summer does? Several best-selling authors — many of whom have not published a novel for many years — have new works out in September.
Avid readers can look forward to a new work from Sara Gruen, the author of Water for Elephants. In Ape House a group of apes are kidnapped from a language laboratory and subsequently cast on a reality TV show (love that premise!!).
In By Nightfall, Michael Cunningham, the author of The Hours, tells the story of a happily married, middle-aged couple whose world is rocked (and not in a good way) when her brother shows up.
Fans of Jonathan Franzen’s 2001 best-seller The Corrections get their Freedom from waiting for his next take on contemporary anxiety with a new tale that targets arch conservative politics, the green movement, and Big Coal.
Best-selling author Julia Glass returns with The Widower’s Tale, the story of an active but lonely man who rexamines the choices he made in the years following his wife’s death.
Fans of John Sandford’s “Prey” spin-off series will welcome back Virgil Flowers as he investigates a multi-generation, multi-family conspiracy involving a series of monstrous crimes in Bad Blood.
And speaking of series, Janet Evanovich launches a new one with Wicked Appetite, introducing pastry chef Lizzie Tucker.
