This year: a wonderful & weird (lush and unexpected) literary publishing event -- a hat trick. On Feb. 4th, it begins with publication of ANNIHILATION -- the first in a trilogy in development for film with Scott Rudin (who's brought you a ton of films you love) and published by Farrar Strauss and Giroux (who have brought you some of the most beautiful, award-winning books you've read). On May 2, the second book comes out: AUTHORITY. And then, no time to catch your breath but I'm guessing you won't want to, the third and final installment arrives. The brain of the author -- JEFF VANDERMEER -- will be on stunning display -- brilliant, otherworldly, the likes of which you've never seen before, even if you've read some of his other award-winners. More to come. But, for now, I feel like I'm announcing available seats at a feast/circus/dirigible-journey/not-of-this-world safari.
