New Fiction Titles on the the New York Times Bestseller List (August 21, 2005)

There were no new fiction titles on the list last Sunday. But a few new titles that the editors recommended are always worth a look.

Lunar Park by Bret Easton Ellis has provoked a lot of attention. Ellis has written a novel with a protagonist named Bret Easton Ellis. How much of it is real? Does it matter?

The Good Priest’s Son by Reynolds Price can be added to the small but growing list of 9/11 novels. Once again the prolific Price wrestles with the role of religion in everyday life.

On a much lighter note is the buccaneering spoof Kingston by Starlight by Christopher John Farley set in Jamaica and featuring a young woman posing as a male pirate. Ahoy and avast!
