The Fullness of Fall: HSWLA titles among season’s most-anticipated books

Pam reading in BrooklynIf the book business is an orchard, it’s densest and most varied as leaves begin to turn and stone fruits give way to apples and pears. But with so many new, appealing options, it’s hard to know which to pick and sample first. Happily, book media publish most-anticipated lists that are guaranteed to guide readers through the harvest and satisfy any literary taste!

Following the Quill & Quire list that declared Julia Lin‘s Miah one of fall 2012′s biggest short story collections is a list from Canadian social reading site The 49th Shelf highlighting new works by clients Pamela Mordecai and Allison Baggio.

The 49th Shelf advises readers to look forward to Pamela Mordecai‘s Subversive Sonnets, her first collection of new poems since 2005′s The True Blue of Islands.  In the words of George Elliott Clarke, Subversive Sonnets,  released by TSAR Publications next month, is a series of “sweet, acerbic, scintillating, and sassy” poems that upend the traditional sonnet form.

Among that month’s most-anticipated books is the first short story collection by Allison Baggio, In the Body (ECW Press). Following last year’s publication of her novel, Girl in Shades, In the Body–called “original, energetic, and utterly captivating” by writer Angie Abdou–illustrates the uncommon variety of experiences and attitudes inspired by the human form.

With fall 2012 titles like these, readers better bring their appetites!
