Releases for the week of August 25th include BLEEDING EDGE by Thomas Pynchon, a historical romance of New York in the early days of the Internet, not that distant in calendar time but galactically remote from where we’ve journeyed to since; EARLY DECISION, Lacy Crawford's debut novel that follows five students over one autumn as a college admissions consultant named Anne helps them craft their college essays, cram for the SATs and perfect the Common Application; and THE KIDS GOT IT RIGHT by Jim Dent, the compelling story of how a black and white player came together to break the color barrier in Texas football in 1965.
