About these ads

Good news from the beleaguered world of book publishing: A "fabulous" crop of quality books will soon be hitting bookstores, Sheryl Cotleur, buying director from Book Passage in Corte Madera, Calif., told Publishers Weekly. "I was going through the [publishers'] catalogues just flipping out  – not only who’s publishing but the quality."

Booksellers were in New York last week for BookExpo America 2009. And, given a chance to see the titles on tap for the second half of 2009, many told PW that they were very excited about what they saw. “This fall is incredible. It’s going to be the best year ever,”  predicted Dick Hermans, founder of Oblong Books in Milford, N.Y.

Here are some of the titles that are creating the buzz:

Books scheduled for release in August:

– "Alex Cross's Trial" by James Patterson and Richard Diallo

– "This Is Where I Leave You," by Jonathan Trooper

– "Await Your Reply," by Dan Chaon
