The publishing hits of summer 2010, and what to look out for this fall.
Regina Nigro, the assistant literary editor at America, looks at the publishing hits of summer 2010. On top of that list is Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy, which has found a home in almost every subway car in New York City, but is not the only mystery worth picking up this summer. Tana French's Faithful Place has been receiving well-deserved raves, and if you like Sherlock Holmes, one of our readers recommends The God of the Hive. Regina reports on these books and some of highly anticipated novels due out in the fall, including Jonathan Franzen's Freedom and Philip Roth's Nemesis. Read Regina's summer reading book blog post here.
