Bust out those reading glasses and get happy! You can merrily ease into fall with new releases from Laurie Weeks, Suzette Mayer, Justin Chin, Scott Sherman, and many more.

  • Anglophiles rejoice! This October brings the long awaited U.S release of Man Booker Award winning novelist Alan Hollinghurst’s  new novel, The Stranger’s Child. The epic novel  is  ‘[a] century-spanning saga about a love triangle that spawns a myth, and a family mystery, across generations.”
  • With her new memoir, Seriously….I’m Kidding (Grand Central), comedian and talk show host Ellen Degeneres  promises to leave “no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled…”
  • Alan Shayne and Norman Sunshine’s dual autobiography  Double Life: A Love Story from Broadway to Hollywood (Magnus Books), offers an insider view into the lives of a gay male couple in a fifty-plus year relationship.  “With high profiles in the entertainment, advertising and art communities, the authors offer a virtual timeline of how gay relationships have gained acceptance in the last half-century. At the same time, they share inside stories from film, television and media featuring the likes of Marlon Brando, Katharine Hepburn, Rock Hudson, Barbra Streisand….”

As always, if we missed an author or book, or if you have a book coming out next month, please email us.

    Thanks for listing Coyote’s Creed, but, I didn’t write Moon Run, or the Wolf Town series. That’s Joely Skye. :)
