My apologies for getting this edition out so late. I have been extremely busy at work with a big conference looming and if that was not enough my internet has been acting up. Well I am happy to finally bring you an update on all that is happening in the world of literature in September, because it starts, (or rather started) with a bang.

On the very first day of the month we see the publication of both the final book in Elena Ferrante’s acclaimed Neapolitan Novels and the latest novel by the always much talked about Jonathan Franzen. They are soon followed by books from John Banville, Salman Rushdie and Sebastian Faulks, and towards the end of the month the latest dystopian tale by Margaret Atwood. Another interesting novel is Arcadia by Iain Pears which comes with an app, apparently the first book to use the app as an integral part of the story. There are also several interesting debuts this month such as Petina Gappah’s The Book of MemoryUnder the Udala Trees by Chinelo Okparanta and Grief is the Thing with Feathers by Max Porter.

There is also no shortage of literary events is September, but for the awards season to properly started we have to wait until October.

I wish you all enjoyable visits to the bookstore in this month of plenty!
