Barnes & Noble's 15 Most Anticipated Books of the Fall
Barnes & Noble announced its Most Anticipated Books for September. These are the books the bookseller anticipates will have strong customer interest. These books range from Elena Ferrante's novel The Lying Life of Adults (Europa) to Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi (Knopf) to David Chang's Eat a Peach.
“A lot more reading has been done this year, one of the very few silver linings to COVID-19. Even so, new publishing has been peddling very gently since late March, absent the support of bookstores. Now the floodgates have well and truly opened, just as our bookstores get back into their stride,” said Barnes & Noble CEO James Daunt. “This is when our booksellers come into their own, applying their skills to curate the best from amongst the plethora of new publishing. Our Most Anticipated Books list for September is a bold introduction to the riches of the fall publishing. With so much that is new, bookstores have suddenly become very exciting.”
