The New Torchlight List

Author(s): Jim Flynn

NZ Non-Fiction

"Writers' festivals, TV book shows, radio interviews, book clubs, TED Talks:today's novelists are a travelling roadshow. New books and their authors are thrown to the wolves, aka reviewers, to be savaged, praised to the skies, or sadly just ignored. In the midst of all this, how can the bewildered booklover decide what to read? Jim Flynn tackles the question head-on in this racy, funny, no-holds-barred book, the sequel to his bestseller The Torchlight List. Flynn spent 6 years reading nearly 400 books by modern authors, including many new works in translation. Are the authors who receive all the hype really the best? Who's worth reading and who's not? Readers will be shocked, surprised and sometimes enraged by Flynn's audacious opinions. Above all they will be inspired, as we have been at Awa Press, to try many new authors and read new work by authors we have loved in the past."
