Random House Drop-In Titles: Announced in October 2016

By Matthew Weston | November 22 2016 | Adult

Newly announced in October 2016, treat yourself to a great read before seeing these film adaptations:

  • JULIETA: In these three linked stories, “Chance,” “Soon,” and “Silence”—which, together, inspired Pedro Almodóvar’s film Julieta—Alice Munro’s virtuosic talents are once again on display. These stories all first appeared in Munro’s story collection RUNAWAY.
  • THE SENSE OF AN ENDING: This Man Booker Prize-winning novel is an exquisite, quietly suspenseful story about a man whose comfortably settled life is upended by a mysterious legacy. Soon to be a major directed by Ritesh Batra, starring Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey), Emily Mortimer, Charlotte Rampling, Jim Broadbent, and Edward Holcroft.
  • THE LOST CITY OF Z: This vivid portrait of a brave and driven man obsessed with a jungle and a legendary city will soon be a major motion picture starring Tom Holland, Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller and produced by Brad Pitt.

And don’t miss THE RULES DO NOT APPLY, a searing memoir that has already drawn praise from Lena Dunham and David Sedaris:

“Ariel Levy is a writer of uncompromising honesty, remarkable clarity and surprising humor, gathered from the wreckage of tragedy. Her account of life doing its darnedest to topple her, and her refusal to be knocked down, will leave you shaken and inspired. I am the better for having read this book.”
Lena Dunham

“Every deep feeling a human is capable of will be shaken loose by this profound book. Ariel Levy has taken grief, and made art out of it.”—David Sedaris
