'The Ocean at the End of the Lane' by Neil Gaiman
This new modern fable—which, at 192 pages, is more of a novella—tells the story of a man who returns to his native English village and suddenly realizes the cost of the horrible evil he fought as a child, with the help of Lettie Hempstock and her extraordinary mother and grandmother.

'The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells' by Andrew Sean Greer
Greta Wells experiences three alternate lives during a therapy session, all with different secrets and losses, pain and happiness. Which one will she ultimately choose?
'Sisterland' by Curtis Sittenfeld
Sittenfeld returns with the story of twin sisters: Vi, a professed psychic, and Kate, a wife and mother in denial of her talents. When Vi predicts a devastating earthquake is around the corner, Kate must decide whether to support her sister and out herself for the potential good of the community, or continue to ignore her own instincts.

'Fin & Lady' by Cathleen Schine
Fin is 11 when his parents die in 1964, and he is sent to live with his older sister, Lady. But Lady is a free spirit, and Fin soon realizes he's as much her caregiver as she is his.
'Amy Falls Down' by Jincy Willett
A sequel of sorts to her last book The Writing Class, Amy Falls Down also stars bitter novelist Amy Gallup. When an interviewer arrives shortly after Amy takes a nasty bump on the head, the resulting article—where Amy's rambling quotes are dubbed pure genius—turns around her failing career.

'The Never List' by Koethi Zan
Zan's story of a young woman marked by the consequences of her time spent as the prisoner of a sadistic kidnapper is drawing lots of buzz already.

'The People in the Trees' by Hanya Yanagihara
This ambitious first novel, billed as an "anthropological adventure," was a decade in the making and is already being compared to Norman Rush and Ann Patchett.
- 19 August 2013
'Archangel' by Andrea Barrett
It's been too long since the National Book Award-winning author released a book. This time it's a collection of short stories about scientific firsts—subject matter that Barrett fans love to see her sink her teeth into.

Browsing the book blog world, I’ve seen a lot of posts about reading goals for 2010. For example, Rebecca at The Book Lady’s Blog writes about reading “deliberately” in 2010—reading classics, reading meatier books and mixing new releases with backlist … Continue reading
I read and reviewed Katharine Weber’s True Confections weeks ago, but I was reminded of just how funny and wacky it is when I stumbled upon the website for Zip’s Candies. The book—which is told in the form of an … Continue reading

Many of you may have heard by now that Sam’s Club is launching a book club this Saturday in Marietta, Georgia. The first pick will be BookPage favorite Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman, which hits shelves on Jan. 12. … Continue reading

This morning I came across a book trailer for Dr. Cuthbert Soup’s debut YA novel, A Whole Nother Story (the book came out a couple weeks ago). The trailer cracked me up, and I thought you might enjoy something silly … Continue reading
I’m always interested in discovering new authors, and a couple weeks ago I was intrigued by an obituary for Milorad Pavic, a Serbian novelist who died on Nov. 30, at age 80. I haven’t read any of Pavic’s books, but … Continue reading
As 2010 rolls around, I know many of you will be making picks for a book club you’ve been a part of for years, or you’ll be joining a new group. (Or, maybe you’ve got your picks lined up months … Continue reading
We are thrilled to announce the launch of BookPage Book of the Day – our first-ever daily e-newsletter! This idea has been in the works for a while. We figure that many of you don’t have time to read BookPage … Continue reading
On Dec. 26, Amazon reported that it sold more e-books than physical books on Christmas Day. Also, the Kindle was the top gift sold on Amazon this holiday season (and apparently the top-selling gift on Amazon.com of all time). These … Continue reading
Since I know it’s easy to lose track of things in the chaos of the holidays, I thought The Book Case readers might appreciate a reminder that tonight is the premiere of Louisa May Alcott: The Woman Behind Little Women … Continue reading
