Book Trailer Thursday: A Tale for the Time Being
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

The 2014 Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence in Fiction and Nonfiction longlist titles were announced yesterday! While we wait to see which six books make the shortlist before two winners are announced in Las Vegas this June, I plan to periodically feature trailers for these exciting titles on BTT. Which brings me to Ruth Ozeki’s […]

Book Trailer Thursday: One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories
Posted by: Courtney Jones

I’m abandoning my tireless coverage of James Franco’s frightening march toward world domination to alert you, dear reader, to this triumphant release by a different funny person we like a little more. B.J. Novak writer/ actor of TV’s “The Office” and BTT curator favorite “The Mindy Project”, has released a delightful, clever trailer featuring fellow […]

Book Trailer Thursday: A Street Cat Named Bob
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

It’s not news that Bob, the ginger (“orange,” in American) heart-stealing, life-changing cat has sat cozily curled on best-seller lists near and far for some time. (He stole Brad Hooper’s heart, for one, back in April.) It is news, however, that over the pond they’ve been enjoying The World According to Bob, which picks up […]

Book Trailer Thursday: This Dark Road to Mercy
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Apparently, when you’re a writer who has a funny brother, you should let him be funny in your book trailer–no matter what the book is about. Michael Cart wrote a great review of Wiley Cash’s serious second novel This Dark Road to Mercy, calling the thriller, “a fine example of reader-pleasing southern storytelling,” with interest […]

Book Trailer Thursday: Henny
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Henny ain’t no ordinary chick. Unlike the wings all the other chicks have, Henny has human-like arms that drag behind her, but also allow her to ballet dance, fly a plane and–I’m just guessing here–maybe even do the hokey pokey. In her starred review, Ilene Cooper calls Henny “hysterical,” with “a good message about making […]

Book Trailer Thursday: Bleeding Edge
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Easing back into things after a few days away from the ol’ desk ‘n screen? Here’s a book trailer for your post-holi-daze; Thomas Pynchon’s Bleeding Edge has made major waves since it was published in September. The longer-than-your-average trailer features some guy saying, “Hi, I’m Tom Pynchon” via his tee-shirt, talking about book’s protagonist/investigator Maxine […]

Book Trailer Thursday: Little Failure
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

This trailer for Gary Shteyngart’s forthcoming Little Failure has been kicking around the internet all week, but it’s an officially unofficial policy at BTT that we feature every book trailer that James Franco touches. So, lucky you, watch again or watch for the first time, and earn extra points for naming every cameo.

Book Trailer Thursday: Breathless
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

On her website, author Nancy K. Miller alluded to someday sharing images of her memoir of 1960s Paris, Breathless: An American Girl in Paris, “reimagined as a graphic memoir.” Just out in November from Seal Press, Breathless borrows its name from one of the films of the moment in time and place that so entranced […]

Book Trailer Thursday: Go: A Kidd’s Guide to Graphic Design
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

The year is almost over, but we have a first for 2013 (and probably ever) on BTT: a beat-boxed book trailer for Chip Kidd’s Go: A Kidd’s Guide to Graphic Design. Ch-ch-ch-ch-eck it out! Now accepting submissions for beat-boxed everything in 2014.

Book Trailer Thanksgiving: Mast Brothers Chocolate
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Can’t think of eating another thing, right? Wrong! Happy Thanksgiving! And, why, hello, Mast Brothers Chocolate: A Family Cookbook. I’d love this trailer even if it weren’t for a book about chocolate, (in part because I see a bearded Adrian Grenier every time I look in the mirror, too, and now I feel less weird […]
