Kevin Powers
’s debut, a war novel about two soldiers in Iraq,
The Yellow Birds

A big fan, he intends to do every-thing he can to promote it, not only because of the sub-ject but because of the lan-guage. “It’s visceral; the language is so poetic, so lit-erary.” His enthusiasm is matched by Calvin Crosby from Book Passage in Corte Madera, Calif. “I’m dying to get back to it,” he says. “To have captured the experi-ence of Iraq while it’s so current is amazing to me. Usually, like with Vietnam, there needs to be some dis-tance, but Powers did it without that distance.” “War seems to be a theme,” Crosby says. He’s also excited about
 In the Shadow of the Banyan

Vaddey Ratner
, a novel about the coming-of-age of a young girl during the Cambodian genocide in the 1970s. Ratner was five years old when the Khmer Rouge came to power in 1975. “It’s history that I knew so little about,” Crosby says. “I wept for over half the book, it was so beautiful, well crafted, and honest.”Jodie Vinson from Brookline Booksmith in Massachusetts is eager to read the new

This Is How You Lose Her

 Flight  Behavior 
 (HarperCollins), set in Appalachia. Vinson heard both authors speak at the author breakfast, which whetted her interest. Kathleen Millard from Elm Street Books in New Canaan, Conn., really wants to read
The Art  Forger 
 (Algonquin) by
B.A. Shapiro
. “I’m always fasci-nated when famous art goes missing and stays hid-den for so many years.” She’s also anticipating the new
Tom Wolfe
,
 Back to  Blood
(Little, Brown). “He’s a classic. He’ll live through the ages. We’re looking for another
 Bonfire
.” Peter Malizia of Costco, Canada, is also high on Tom Wolfe. “He’s a big name. If you sell in the States, you sell in Canada.”
Tigers in Red Weather 
 (Little, Brown),
Liza Klaussmann
’s debut novel, set at the end of WWII, is generating buzz. (Klauss-mann is the great-great-great-granddaughter of Herman Melville.) Margie Scott-Tucker of Book Inc. in San Francisco says she “loved it” and thinks it will  be a big book club book. She also “loved, loved, loved”
The Unlikely  Pilgrimage of Harold Fry
,
Rachel Joyce
’s novel (another debut from Random House). “Everyone over 50 should read this  book,” she says.For Bill Cusumano, of Nicola’s Books in Ann Arbor, Mich., it’s
 John Saturnall’s Feast
 by
Lawrence Norfolk
 (Grove). Cusumano calls the story of the orphan, kitchen boy, and finally, master chef, set in 17th-century England “just a wonderful book.” He’s also excited to read
Jon Meacham
’s biography of
Thomas Jefferson
 (Random House) because “there hasn’t been a full  biography of Jefferson in 30 years.” And then there’s
J.K. Rowling 
’s first novel for adults,
The Casual Vacancy
 (Little, Brown). “This is the  book everyone is scared of. We’re really worried. What if people tell their friends it’s not Harry Potter?”Land Arnold, of Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill, N.C., in addition to the new
Barbara Kingsolver
, is looking forward to
The Vanishing Act
 (Norton) by
Mette Jakobsen
. Arnold’s  business partner, Jamie Fiocco, says that “it does seem to have a lot of buzz.”
