Newspaper picks their reading highlights of the year ahead
The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach, January, Fourth Estate
Bought for a whopping advance of $650,000, this is one of the most anticipated US debuts of the year. Bearing advance praise from Jonathan Franzen and John Irving (and the possibly unique accolade of having already had a book written about how it was written, by author Keith Gessen), The Art of Fielding follows the story of baseball player Henry Skrimshander, as just one wrong throw threatens to send five lives off course.
