Hi Davina (new free list)
This coming week is a strangely quiet one for new books, or at least titles that we've identified as sufficiently notable for us to include in this weekly update. I would put it down to proximity to the US election but for the fact that the coming two weeks are busier than this.
One of the seven titles is Tiffanie DeBartolo's Sorrow
which Kirkus (in its starred review) deems "a smart, thoughtful work that balances romance with intriguing philosophical questions." We'll be discussing Sorrow
in our Book Club
starting December 1. Discussions are open to all so if you plan to read it between now and then, do join us!
Also, in this week's Culture Corner
we look at three of the great American playwrights of the 20th century: Arthur Miller, Tennessee Williams and Eugene O'Neill. The 1999 Tony-winning revival of Miller's Death of a Salesman
is available from October 21 - 25 on Playbill. You'll find more information and links to other works in Culture Corner.
