News, Tips, Trends and Miscellany for Book Publicists

NPR Books Watch — 2/12-2/18

Yesterday I fell asleep on the subway dreaming of the slopes and woke up at West Fourth Street — ah, well.  Life’s not perfect.  At least today is Friday.

Anyone who emails me the imprints of all the books listed (or houses if no imprint is available) will win the NPR Books Grid for the prior week that includes, in addition to the information below, interviewer, pub date, imprint, genre, post-interview Amazon ranking, pre-interview ranking (if the book was mentioned on Shelf Awareness and I was able to look up the number before the interview), and interview hyperlink.

* indicates the interview is a rebroadcast.
