Publishers Weekly’s Best of Fall 2012

Publishers Weekly’s Best of Fall 2012

September is almost upon us and that means Fall titles are about to start showing up at your library waiting to be shelved!

At the beginning of August Publishers Weekly posted their list of The Best Books of Fall 2012, let's take another look at the Macmillan titles on that list, shall we?


STORMDANCER by Jay Kristoff 

"Kristoff’s imaginative fantasy debut presents the feudal, dystopian Shima Empire, a menacing Japanese-inspired setting in which 'the lotus must bloom' even though it turns all it touches into a toxic wasteland. The innovative setting, fast-moving plot, vivid descriptions, and thrilling action scenes make this a refreshing addition to the steampunk canon."

THE SCIENTISTS: a Family Romance by Marco Roth

"In this powerfully forlorn debut memoir, literary critic Roth mines the silence and shame he experienced growing up on Central Park West in the 1980s and ’90s as his scientist father died of AIDS."


MASTER OF THE MOUNTAIN: Thomas Jefferson and His Slaves by Henry Wiencek

"Written by NBCC-award winnig historian Wiencek (THE HAIRSTONS: An American Epic in Black and White), this meticulous account indicts not only Thomas Jefferson -- who referred to blacks as 'degraded and different' with 'no place in our country' -- but also modern apologists who wish to retain him as a moral standard of liberty. Wiencek’s vivid, detailed history casts a new slant on a complex man."


THE FUN STUFF by James Wood

"This collection of 23 essays gathered from the New Republic, the London Review of Books, and the New Yorker offers the latest proof that Wood (HOW FICTION WORKS) is one of the best readers writing today. Devouring these pieces back to back feels like having a long conversation about books with your most erudite, articulate, and excitable friend."

"We've combed through hundreds of books to find our favorites of what's on tap for the season," said Publishers Weekly.
