They must be high-fiving over at Knopf. Their big front-list title of the summer, The Last Werewolf, by Glen Duncan (Knopf, 7/12) gets the love from the Washington Post‘s Ron Charles, in a review studded with praise, for the language, chacterizations, plot and even the “hot werewolf sex scenes (which will tempt readers “to wander out under the full moon [themselves] next month.”)

Duncan was interviewed yesterday on Minnesota Public Radio. Interviewer Kerri Miller admits that she was wary of a book featuring a werewolf, but ended up loving it so much that she keeps pressing it on others. She was tipped off by Justin Cronin (author of The Passage), who says he is reviewing it for a “major daily.”

Unsurprisingly, given the enthusiastic coverage on Minnesota Public Radio, holds are building fast in Minnesota libraries. Libraries in other parts of the country are showing modest holds on light ordering (single copies for the larger branches). Time to order more; this kind of enthusiasm indicates word of mouth should be taking off soon.
