USA Today’s Winter Books Calendar

USA Today‘s calendar of major titles coming out through April is now available. Although it tends to cover the predictable big-name authors, it’s a good way to get to know the book covers that will soon become ubiquitous. It’s like RA flashcards.

In an an accompanying article, the USA Today book editors query booksellers about their picks and discover a few less obvious titles. Geoffrey Jennings of Rainy Day Books (KS) says The Tiger’s Wife by Téa Obreht (Random House, March 8) is “The debut novel we’re all excited about…[Obreht] deftly uses the history and conflict of the Balkans [to tell a] tale filled with metaphor and mystery.” It was also mentioned several times on Tuesday’s Galley Chat. Random House will be featuring it at their booth (#1816) at MidWinter.

Author Téa Obreht is the youngest of The New Yorker‘s twenty best American fiction writers under forty.
