Fall 2007 Titles – Random House of Canada


Over the next week or two I will be posting reflections on BookExpo Canada, as well as my picks from the various publishers’ Fall 2007 lines. I came home from BEC with several bags of these catalogues (with the resulting sore shoulders) and more arrive on my doorstep each day. To start off the post-BEC recap, today I am highlighting my picks of Random House of Canada’s Fall lines. As always, these picks are provided with the proviso that these are my top picks and being left off this list in no way reflects on the merits of a particular title.
