Book Trailer Thursday: Dancing with Cats
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

This April, Chronicle will release a 15th anniversary reissue of Dancing with Cats by Burton Silver and Heather Busch (1999), which promises to keep “all the mystery and magic of cat dancing delightfully intact,” according to the book’s press release. The book’s copyright page acknowledges that, “Neither the publisher, author, nor photographer accept any responsibility […]

Book Trailer Thursday: The Boys in the Boat
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Turn on your TV and flip to NBC. Now, dial it back 77 years, six months and a few days. Set the antennae about 60 degrees to the… What, your TV doesn’t do that? Did you try kicking the side of it? Switching off then on again? You should probably get that fixed, but luckily […]

Book Trailer Thursday: Romance Is My Day Job
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

In the spirit of wholeheartedly embracing that equally loved and loathed mid-February holiday arriving on our doorsteps tomorrow, BTT turns to–who else?–a Romance editor for some wisdom this week. Harlequin editor Patience Bloom shares her real-life love story via the well-known characters and plots of classic romances in Romance Is My Day Job (Dutton). (Dangerous […]

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.
