Congratulations to Valerie Martin, whose novel, THE CONFESSIONS OF EDWARD DAY, made the “100 Notable Books of 2009″ list by the book reviewers at The New York Times. If you’re not familiar with Valerie’s work, you really ought to be, and this newest novel is a fine place to start.
And now that we’ve had a chance to peruse the full NYT list of notable books, we’ve got our winter reading figured out. Some of our intended adventures include Dave Eggers’ ZEITOUN and Jonathan Lethem’s CHRONIC CITY.
A few of our other favorites that have made the list are Colum McCann’s LET THE GREAT WORLD SPIN (Molly can’t stop raving about it!), Wells Tower’s collection EVERYTHING RAVAGED, EVERYTHING BURNED.
