Former leading New Zealand publisher and bookseller, and widely experienced judge of both the Commonwealth Writers Prize and the Montana New Zealand Book Awards, talks about what he is currently reading, what impresses him and what doesn't, along with chat about the international English language book scene, and links to sites of interest to booklovers.
I’m so excited about the books newly
released in paperback this month. There are a couple of terrific memoirs
from powerful women, Isabel Allende’s latest novel, and a fun new book
about an engineer-turned-baker. Stephen King fans will be happy to see
his collaboration with Owen King released this month, as will anyone who
is looking forward to reading a collection of short stories from
America’s most beloved actor, Tom Hanks. The beginning of fall often
brings a stellar publishing lineup and these paperbacks won’t disappoint!
