As if the muggy 90 degree weather wasn’t enough to make me wish for fall, look at the books coming out in October!
Bonnie Jo Campbell is one of my favorite writers, and she hasn’t had a book out since her wonderful 2011 novel Once Upon a River. Her new one is a collection of short stories, and given how much her previous collections rocked my socks, I am incredibly excited about this one.
Patti Smith is one of my heroes, and I loved her previous memoir Just Kids, which focused on her early years as an artist in NYC and her friendship with Robert Mapplethorpe. M Train is a follow up to Just Kids which will reportedly focus on other aspects of her life, including her marriage to Fred “Sonic” Smith.
