- About the Book
Buzz Books gives you 40 chances to find your next great reads, providing exclusive early looks at the next big thing from favorite authors and hot new discoveries. From bestselling authors we have samples of new work from Barbara Kingsolver, Diane Chamberlain and Jude Devereaux, who breaks away from romance with her first mystery. A rich selection of highly anticipated follow-up books is inside too: Sarah Perry's Melmoth, a companion to The Essex Serpent; Elizabeth McCracken's Bowlaway; and Leif Enger's Virgil Wander. This edition is packed with 16 big debut novels, including the highly-touted The Silent Patient by British screenwriter Alex Michaelides, already being adapted to film and posed to become an international bestseller, and Kathy Wang's Family Trust, described as The Nest set in Silicon Valley. In nonfiction, bestselling novelist and history author Stephen L. Carter writes about his grandmother in Invisible: The Forgotten Story Of The Black Woman Lawyer Who Took Down America's Most Powerful Mobster. Journalist Stephanie Land describes her poverty-ridden early years in Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, And A Mother's Will To Survive, a Book Expo Buzz Editor's Panel pick. Memoirs on two opposite ends of the spectrum include My Own Devices by rap singer Dessa and Witness: Lessons From Elie Wiesel's Classroom by Ariel Burger. Regular readers know that each Buzz Books collection is filled with early looks at titles that will go on to top the bestseller lists and critics' "best of the year" lists. And our comprehensive seasonal preview starts the book off with a curated overview of hundreds of notable books on the way later this year. While Buzz Books feels like your own insider access to book publishing, these collections are meant to be shared, so spread your enthusiasm and "to be read" picks online. For still more great previews, check out our separate Buzz Books 2018: Young Adult Fall/Winter as well. Finally, don't miss our popular Buzz Books Monthly editions, available on Amazon, iBooks, and NetGalley, for up-to-the-minute monthly publication lists and excerpts.
