The Waterstones Eleven

Published January 16, 2013 by bibliobeth

First of all, thanks to my sister for making me aware of this literary announcement (chrissireads.wordpress.com). The book chain Waterstones has recently announced a list of eleven books they are hailing as “the most promising fiction debuts of the year.” With the success of debut novels such as The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry (Rachel Joyce) which was also long-listed for the Booker Prize they are giving a voice to these eleven authors anticipating both “critical acclaim and commercial success.”

Waterstones will be publishing one book every month, please see the selection and my review below.

JANUARY – Y by Marjorie Celona

FEBRUARY – The Universe Versus Alex Woods by Gavin Extence

MARCH – The Fields by Kevin Maher

APRIL – Ghana Must Go by Taiye Selasi

MAY – Idiopathy by Sam Byers

JUNE – The Son by Michel Rostain

JULY – The Spinning Heart by Donal Ryan

AUGUST – Ballistics by D.W. Wilson

SEPTEMBER – Burial Rites by Hannah Kent

OCTOBER – Marriage Material by Sathnam Sanghera

NOVEMBER – Pig’s Foot by Carlos Acosta, Frank Wynne

Oh Waterstones, you naughty tempter! I will definitely be checking these out. For more information, please see the Waterstones website at http://www.waterstones.com
