Looking Forward to 2008: The Drop Edge of Yonder

In Time Out New York's year-end wrap-up of the "Best (and Worst) of 2007" Michael Miller rates the year's best books.

Miller gives props to the greatly under-appreciated Gary Lutz, for his chapbook, Partial List of People to Bleach (Future Tense Books), and Adrian Tomine for his graphic novel, Shortcomings (Drawn & Quarterly), among other deserving titles for the year. [It is also worth noting, that I was introduced to both the Lutz and Tomine books at the Wordstock Book Festival in Portland this year.]

Of particular interest to us, is the fact that Miller mentions The Drop Edge of Yonder, novel by Rudolph Wurlitzer (forthcoming, April 2008), as an "early sign of promise" that publishers will take more chances on challenging titles in 2008.
