Not. This. One. I just got a whiff from Will Bunch:
An early hint may come in June, when Beck publishes his book The Overton Window, which he described as "a story of America in a time much like today where the people are confused," with a government in crisis and the rise of a citizens' group called the Founders Keepers, which "leads to a battle and a civil war, and life is upside-down planetwide."
A Glenn Beck book where "people are confused"? Oh who am I kidding?!? I can't fucking wait for this book to come out, and I'm saving the above graphic to post at larger sites (apparently Huffpo isn't doing any contest after all? Pity.) I actually may have to get some audio clips of "read by the author" for a movie mashup. And you know the General's review will be worth the wait.
I was so disappointed to read about the new release of one of my favorite authors, Justin Cronin. His books The Summer Guest and Mary and O'Neill are lovely, just lovely. The Summer Guest is definitely great American novel material and Blue Gal highly recommended.
Now he's come out with an 800 page dystopian novel about...vampires. Sigh. Also before it was a novel it was the subject of a movie rights bidding war. Well of course it was. I'm delighted that the author of two lovely little books gets almost two million bucks out of his career, but at that cost it makes me weep.
I'd love to hear what's on your bookshelf for the summer.
