I love these authors and can't wait for their new releases! I didn't know that Jami Attenberg was writing another novel. THE MIDDLESTEINS was one of my all time faves and am anticipating another great read. And what can compare to short stories by award winning author, Anne Beattie?

The WSJ is usually right on target, "literally" and financially. So check out their choices...

“Saint Mazie”

by Jami Attenberg; June 2

Jami Attenberg, best-selling author of “The Middlesteins,” has written a novel inspired by Mazie P. Gordon, a woman profiled by Joseph Mitchell in the New Yorker in 1940. In the novel, Mazie, a bawdy movie-theater proprietress on New York’s Lower East Side, opens the theater’s doors to the homeless during the Great Depression.

“The State We’re In: Maine Stories”

by Ann Beattie; Aug. 11

This is the first new collection in more than a decade from short-story master Ann Beattie. Three of them are about Jocelyn, a teenager sent for the summer to live with her Uncle Raleigh and dreaded Aunt Bettina Louise Tompkins (BLT for short.)

“The Diver’s Clothes Lie Empty”

by Vendela Vida; June 2

This is the fourth novel from award-winning author Vendela Vida. A woman traveling in Casablanca is robbed of all her money and identification, and takes a job as a stand-in for a movie star.


by A.J. Rich; July 7

Award-winning authors Amy Hempel and Jill Ciment, writing together under the pen name A.J. Rich, have collaborated on a thriller in tribute to their late friend, Katherine Russell Rich. The story, about a woman who discovers that her fiancé is not who he said he was, is inspired by a real-life experience of Ms. Rich.
