New Richard Powers Novel Has Title and Release Date
FSG has recently announced a spate of titles for fall 2009. Among the bunch is Richard Power’s new novel, Generosity: An Enhancement, which is set for release in October. As soon as I determine any additional information, I will certainly report it here.
And if you somehow missed out on the comprehensive roundtable discussion of Powers’s last novel, The Echo Maker (which included a contribution from Powers himself), you can revisit the conversation here.
[12/17 UPDATE: I've been informed by several sources that the new novel is about the discovery of a happiness gene, which certainly places Power's recent essay on the human genome in an interesting light. More info as I uncover it.]
