In the Mail: Hogarth Press & Fifty Shades of Grey
Hogarth is a new literary imprint from Crown Publishing Group that is publishing "Contemporary, voice-driven, character-rich books that entertain, inform, and move readers" according to their masthead. The initial selection looks intriguing. Hogarth sent me a Limited Edition "Hogarth Launch Edition" containing their first four titles and a nice Hogarth tote bag.
The four launch titles contained therein are:
The Kissing List by Stephanie Reents I Am Forbidden by Anouk Markovitz The Watch by Joydeep Roy-Bhattacharya The Dead Do Not Improve by Jay Caspian Kang
I'll be reviewing some or all of them in the near future.
Also delivered today was a(nother) box of Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James. Cannot keep this book in stock! Mommy-porn @ #1 on the NYTimes Bestseller list - who'd have thunk it?
