Seattle, WA, November 26, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Washington’s premier literary and culture newsmagazine, The Seattle Review of Books, announced its top picks in literature and fiction for December 2007. Unsurprisingly, James Patterson’s Double Cross- which many dub his best Alex Cross novel yet- came in at first place alongside comedian Steve Martin’s Born Standing Up and Ken Follet’s World Without End.
In an unprecedented move, SRB also highlight two-yes, two- collections of poetry for this month. Newbie author Cortnee Howard’s indie hit, Fannin Street, came in at number two behind Patterson’s Double Cross. Robert Hass’ highly anticipated collection of new and selected late poems, Time and Materials, rounded out the list at number five.
Double Cross, Born Standing Up, World Without End and Time and Materials are now available at major bookstores nationwide. Howard’s Fannin Street is scheduled for release December 12 and is available for pre-order online.
