Media attention is heating up for a book that many librarians are calling a “processing nightmare,” S., by Doug Dorst and J. J. Abrams, (Hachette/Mulholland; Hachette Audio), a book within a book that includes loose pieces of ephemera (see more in our New Title Radar, under “Special Note”).
It may be a processing nightmare, but, as Abrams described on yesterday’s CBS This Morning, it is tribute to his love of the printed word.
It has also been featured by the L.A. Times, USA Today and the NYT Sunday Book Review, among others. The first review is from The Telegraph (the book was embargoed, so it wasn’t reviewed by the pre-pub sources). UPDATE: PW has just posted their review.
