Advanced Publication Newsletter (APN)
For Library Managers in Acquisitions and Collection Development
Welcome to the Fall 2013 edition of PENGUIN GROUP (USA)'s Advance Publication Newsletter. This newsletter includes late-breaking reviews, news of award-winners, up-to-date price information, and book descriptions for September through December titles. We hope you will take some time to review the many new books included here.
As usual, the newsletter is divided into subject categories in order to route each section to your appropriate acquisitions and collection development specialists.
- Elizabeth Gilbert, bestselling memoirist and author of Eat, Pray, Love, returns to fiction in The Signature of All Things, an enthralling story of love, adventure, and discovery in the 18th and 19th centuries (see Fiction). Make sure to also check out Troubled Daughters, Twisted Wives, featuring chilling tales from trailblazers of domestic suspense like Patricia Highsmith and Shirley Jackson (see Mysteries/ Thrillers), and don't miss the final book in Rachel Caine's Morganville Vampire Series, Daylighters (see Science Fiction/ Fantasy)
