The Cherry & the Pit

A continuing series that highlights books recently acquired by publishing houses for future release. Each post features a book we’re looking forward to, and a book we’re . . . not.

The Cherry:

Cynthia Ozick’s Foreign Bodies, set in postwar New York, Paris, and California, the story of a divorced schoolteacher who tries to resolve her brother’s family dramas, leading to extraordinary and wholly unanticipated results.

The Pit:

Smashing Pumpkins front man Billy Corgan’s untitled spiritual memoir.
