A Window Opens, by Elizabeth Egan (August 2015): From the BEA Speed Dating event, pitched by the publisher as a story about a woman's quest to "have it all."
The Double Life of Liliane, by Lily Tuck (September 2015): I've had Tuck's first novel on my shelf for years; her second promises to be excellent.
Eileen, by Otessa Moshfegh (September 2015): Lots of buzz around this one. I'm intrigued but skeptical.
Scrapper, by Matt Bell (September 2015): I never had a chance to read Bell's earlier novel, In the House Upon the Dirt Between the Lake and the Woods, but I heard enough things to be sure to swing by Soho's booth to pick up a copy of this one before I left.
And West is West, by Ron Childress (October 2015): The answer to the, "What book are you most excited about?" question at the Algonquin booth.
The Wake, by Paul Kingsnorth (September 2015): The answer to the, "What book are you most excited about?" question at the Graywolf Press booth; this one promises to be a trip of language and creativity.
Did You Ever Have a Family, by Bill Clegg (September 2015): You literally could not turn sideways at BEA without seeing this book somewhere; I'm a bit skeptical of the hype, but I still can't wait to start it. (Bonus: The local bookstore in my town has already read this and says nothing but good things.)
Dear Mr. You, by Mary Louise Parker (November 2015): Another one with lots of buzz that I'm attempting to go into rather blind--if at all possible.
DC Trip, by Sara Benincasa (November 2015): I didn't get a chance to meet Benincase while she was at the show, but she tipped me off on Twitter that I could swing by her publisher's booth to ask for a spare copy of her upcoming novel. Of course I did just that.
The Mark and the Void, by Paul Murray (October 2015): I loved Skippy Dies and almost jumped for joy when I saw this available at the show. I'll be reviewing for Shelf Awareness.
Black Man in a White Coat, by Damon Tweedy (September 2015): Another one from the BEA Buzz panel that promises excellence.
In a Dark, Dark Wood, by Ruth Ware (September 2015): The first of two novels (the other being the Clegg novel) from a new imprint, Scout Press. I started this on the train ride home. Can't wait to keep going.
