“Literary Traffic Jam”– Notable Books Coming out this Fall

EarlyWord reports that according to the NY Times a veritable glut of new titles from “superstar” authors will be arriving, some of whom haven’t published a book in years. Considering I heard an interview with Junot Diaz this morning on NPR about “This is How You Lose Her” (which was interesting because Diaz explained his thoughts on men’s attitudes toward women), I imagine there will be plenty of book talks, appearances, and other publicity to get the word out. Both reviewers and bookstore owners sound very excited about the upcoming titles:
