2003 forecast

I noticed a few book mentions in this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, devoted to the new year: a new book by Eric Schlosser (of Fast Food Nation fame) will be out in Spring. Then Suzan Lori-Parks (Topdog/Underdog) will have a novel out in May, called Getting Mother’s Body. But we’ll have to wait till September for Jhumpa Lahiri’s much anticipated first novel, described as “a multi-generational tale of a Bengali family in America called The Namesake“.
