Nothing gets me more excited that previews on books that are soon to be published, so I could'nt resist this collection. Although I have read and enjoyed an earlier edition of The Algonquin Reader, I found that none of the essays in this particular collection really intrigued me. But that is not to say I won't be on the lookout for the next Algonquin Reader.

A huge thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for sending me a digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I truly apprec

I always look forward to seeing what Algonquin is recommending in their seasonal catalog. Their suggestions are always interesting and unique. Something out of the ordinary.

The Algonquin Reader gives a hint at upcoming titles from this publisher. Of course, the only dilemma is that each portion acts as an appetizer.

Algonquin publishes titles that speak to personal history, daily life, and heritage. I’m read to delve into some new, full texts this fall.

Recommended for those readers looking for fresh voices in contemporary fiction.

Shapiro whose new novel is about post Impressionist Art, the Barnes Foundation and Paris in the 1920s. I am quite excited about this one as I have been a frequent visitor to Philadelphia's Barnes Foundation and have taken a class on Contemporary Art.

There is another fictional story set in the world of art, Heather Rose's The Museum of Modern Love. This is about the artist Mar

The Algonquin Reader Fall 2018 carries original essays by their fiction writers and excerpts from their forthcoming books. The ones that had me hooked are The Collector's Apprentice by BA Shapiro, Sugar Run by Mesha Maren and Blood Highway by Gina Wohlsdorf.

The Collector’s Apprentice seems promising for any Post Impressionist art lover. Set in the 1920s, mixed with love and betrayal the excerpt had me hooked.

In Sugar Run, the main protagonist is going back home after eighteen years post her sti
