Description

The fourth edition of Buzz Books includes 40 substantial excerpts from the most buzzed about books to be published spring/summer of 2014. Fiction, nonfiction, and young adult work is represented by all the major publishers. This volume coincides with one of the most important industry events, the American Booksellers Association’s “Winter Institute,” where dozens of authors appear. At the end of most excerpts, you will find a link to the full galley on NetGalley!

Excerpts from new books include British authors Jojo Moyes (One Plus One) and Edward St. Aubyn (Lost for Words), alongside bestselling writers Robyn Carr (Four Friends) and Greg Iles (Natchez Burning). We preview Giller Prize winner Joseph Boyden’s The Orenda, plus novelists Jean Kwok (known for Girl in Translation) and Maggie Shipstead (author of Seating Arrangements).

Highly-anticipated debuts include screenwriter Laline Paull’s The Bees and Marie-Helene Bertino’s 2 A.M. at The Cat’s Pajamas as well as a posthumous roman-à-clef from journalist Michael Hastings and bestselling narrative nonfiction author Ben Mezrich’s Seven Wonders.

Selections are roughly organized by genre and then publication date. In addition, fill your to-be-read lists with the extensive preview of the entire publishing season.

Instead of keeping that industry “buzz” closed off in the room with that small group of lucky booksellers, we’re giving everyone the same kind of access to checking out the newest voices the publishing industry is building for the next season.

A Note From the Publisher

There’s nothing like the excitement of being one of the first people to discover a great new read. Now in its fourth edition, Buzz Books has proven itself as the place where book publishing insiders and passionate book lovers alike can get their first taste of some of the year’s most extraordinary new books. The overwhelming majority of our selections go on to win awards and appear on booksellers’ monthly lists of “best books” as well as “best books of the year” from many sources—while topping bestseller lists and reading group selections as well. Inside the book business, this volume also coincides with one of the most important industry events, the American Booksellers Association’s “Winter Institute.” This is an annual gathering of 500 independent booksellers, now a major launch pad for the spring and summer seasons, where dozens of authors—including ten of those whose work is included here—sign pre-publication galleys and discuss their forthcoming books informally with bookstore owners.
