Galleys to Grab at BEA, Part Three

These titles come from the official galleys-to-grab list appearing in Publishers Weekly's current issue. I don't know if non-subscribers can view the link, but the full article is here. A couple of these are repeats from my previous posts.

Lee Smith, On Agate Hill, Algonquin (Oct). "A Reconstruction-era epic that follows a woman's life from orphanhood to widowhood."

Jed Rubenfeld, The Interpretation of Murder, Holt (Sept). "Reimagines Sigmund Freud as a literary crime-solver in New York City, while on his 1909 visit to America with protégé and rival Carl Jung." Judging by my SiteMeter stats, lots of his fans are googling this title.

Kathleen McGowan, The Expected One, Touchstone (Aug). "Tale of a descendant of Mary Magdalene based on 20 years of research."

Doug Marlette, Magic Time, FSG (Sept). "Tale of a New York City newspaper columnist who returns to Mississippi to face his repressed past, just as an unsolved civil rights case opens."

Seems like a shorter list than usual for PW, but I'm sure there'll be plenty more - including the ones I posted about already. PW has a separate list for children's and young adult titles here.
