The Guardian looks at some of the books coming out in 2009.
Personally, I am looking forward to the new Sarah Water - which will not include lesbians this time. *gasp* The horror. :p
I am also interested in William Dalrymple's new book - on religion in India. I enjoyed Dalrymple's travelogues, which are funny.
I am however, totally indifferent to the new Thomas Pynchon.
