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:

Colum McCann’s Thirteen Ways of Looking, exploring a murder from multiple points of view, and inspired in part by the Wallace Stevens poem “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird.”

The Pit:

Christopher Weingarten’s Hipster Puppies, based on his eponymous web site, featuring color photos of the world’s hippest pups with super-snarky captions, most new and not seen on the site.
