One of our New Title Radar “Watch Titles” for this week, The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey, just received an influential endorsement; the Costco book buyer, Pennie Clark Ianniciello, features the debut novel as her pick in the February newsletter, saying the author has “found a lovely balance between the harsh reality of life in 1920s Alaska and the lush dreaminess of a fairy tale.”

It also received a bookseller endorsement in the UK. It is one of  bookstore chain Waterstones’ annual pick of forthcoming debut titles expected to win literary prizes and large sales. According to the Guardian, the most talked-about book on that list is Chad Harbach’s Art of Fielding, which was just released in the UK, despite concern that British readers will have difficulty with the book’s baseball references.
