PW’s Most Anticipated Books of Spring 2015

Publishers Weekly recently announced their Spring 2015 TBR pile (including debuts) and 10 Macmillan titles made the cut!

THE WHITES by Richard Price writing as Harry Brandt
On Sale: February 17
“Price (LUSH LIFE) is one whale of a storyteller by any name, as evinced by the debut of his new brand—okay, Brandt—a gripping, gritty, Greek tragedy of cops, killers, and the sometimes-blurry line between them. The author skillfully manipulates these multiple story lines for peak suspense, as his arresting characters careen toward a devastating final reckoning.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

THE SUNLIT NIGHT by Rebecca Dinerstein
On Sale: June 2
“With provocative insights about the cruelty of abandonment, the concept of home, and the limits of parental and filial love, Dinerstein’s novel is a rich reading experience.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

MAKING NICE by Matt Sumell
On Sale: February 17
“From the first page, Sumell’s exceptional novel in stories unleashes one of the most comically arresting voices this side of Sam Lipsyte’s HOMELAND. Sumell’s debut demonstrates an almost painful compassion for the sinner in most of us, making MAKING NICE even more fun than eavesdropping in a confession booth.”
