The Middlesteins by Jami Attenberg (October 23, Grand Central): A Chicago family tries to save its matriarch, Edie, from her uncontrollable overeating. Per Bullock: “A touching, very funny, honest, and sharp look at marriage and relationships, family ties, and, of course, our insatiable national food culture. The descriptions of the Chinese food at Edie’s favorite restaurant are maddeningly mouthwatering; and now I put cinnamon in everything.” Christine Onorati, owner of Word bookstore, also recommends The Middlesteins—and has plenty of signed copies on hand, as Attenberg is an occasional Word bookseller. (via Molly Fisher, Fall Preview 2012: New York’s indie booksellers recommend the best new reads | Capital New York)
In which I, Sarah McNally, Jenn Northington, and more tell you what to read this fall.
