Each month, I’m going to recommend my favorite new books. Why should you trust my suggestions? I read a lot of books. I edit Omnivoracious, the book blog of Amazon.com, and The Bygone Bureau. But mostly, I’m extremely optimistic about the current state of books. I believe the best literature is being written right now.
The trailer suggests Norwegian Wood, which was featured at last year’s Venice Film Festival, will capture some of the visual magic that the book suggests, but it looks to be mostly a straightforward, of-this-world production, which might make readers wonder if they’d been tripping when they read the book.
