I hate to think that Fall is fast approaching, although on a positive note, Fall book releases are looking positive.  Publishers Weekly included a list of books by some familiar authors.  Below find some brief comments....

The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell (Random, Sept.) - Channeling multiple lives and chance encounters, as in Cloud Atlas, Mitchell's ambitious new novel is called "a thing of beauty" by PW.

A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James (Riverhead, Oct.) -An engrossing epic that explores the tumultuous world of Jamaica over three decades and the attempted assassination of Bob Marley in the late 1970s. PW says "this novel should be required reading."

Lila by Marilynne Robinson (FSG, Oct.) - This third of three novels set in the fictional plains town of Gilead, Iowa, follows Gilead and Home; it's called a "masterpiece of prose" by PW. for a new release by Haruki Marakami .... 

Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage by Haruki Murakami (Knopf, Aug.) - Murakami follows the life of a loner years after his group of best friends told him they didn't want to see him any longer--and reveals the secrets of their entwined pasts.
