Here are a handful of books I can’t wait to read over the next few months. I’ve already read a couple, actually, including Willy Vlautin’s amazing The Free, which is in the running to be my book of the year. Talented sod that he is. The list below also has new books from two of my favourite writers, Megan Abbott and Craig Davidson, so pretty exciting.
