FALL OUT....OR IN
Here's more news on what's trending this Fall.. Some of my
favorite and not so favorite authors are making the scene. You'll recognize the names.
I'm reserving judgement on the new Valerie Plame's (former CIA seductress) book, also Elizabeth Gilbert of Eat, Love, Pray fame. I can't wait for the debut of Wally Lamb's new one, Alice Hoffman's release and my all time fave, Julien Barnes.
So here's what you can look forward to...or not....
