Julia by Sandra Newman (Oct. 24)
Julia is a retelling of George Orwell's dystopian classic, 1984, told from the perspective of the protagonist's lover, Julia Worthing. I have always adored 1984, so I was initially wary of a contemporary writer defiling the original story. However, I have since learned that Orwell’s estate not only sanctioned the book, but had actually been in pursuit an author to tell the story of Julia. Now I'm especially intrigued by the book, given the fact that Newman, a respected author previously longlisted for the Women’s Prize “proved to be the perfect fit” according to the estate. – Emmanuel Hidalgo-Wohlleben
