Two releases by popular authors are debuting soon. I've been a fan of Curtis Sittenfeld since her first novel Prep, an achingly funny coming of age story published in 2005.

Don DeLillo is best known for novels which focus on American life in the late 20th and 21st century.  The recipient of two Pulitzer Prizes, his 17th novel, Zero K is predicted to be a blockbuster.

Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld

Random House


Curtis Sittenfeld’s Eligible is a playful, wickedly smart retelling of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Set in the 21st century, the modern Bennet family grew up in a sprawling Tudor home in Cincinnati but now lives in New York City, while Mr. Bingley is a doctor and recent reality TV star and Mr. Darcy is a neurosurgeon. Austen herself would surely approve.

ZERO K by Don DeLillo


Joyce Ravid


Set in a future where humans can control death, Don DeLillo’s new novel Zero K centers around a scientific compound that preserves bodies indefinitely until technological and medical advances can heal and revive them. With humor and wisdom, DeLillo reflects on our relationship with death (and life), and our choices to preserve or leave behind those we love.
