Book Buzz

  • April is National Poetry Month. Amazon’s bestselling book of poetry? Mary Oliver’s Red Bird, which will be published April 15. For ideas on celebrating this festive occasion, check out the Academy of American Poets website. I’ve temporarily added a few poetry widgets for your enjoyment.
  • Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jhumpa Lahiri released a new collection of short stories on Tuesday: Unaccustomed Earth. USA Today gives the book a glowing review, and I cannot wait to get my hands on it. If it is anything like Interpreter of Maladies, we are in for a treat.
  • Both Dateline NBC and Oprah featured Mistaken Identity this week, and the book is currently #4 on Amazon’s bestsellers list. Apparently, the best way to deal with a horrific tragedy is through a media blitz.
