1942 bestselling novels slated for review here

The bestseller list for 1942 doesn’t include many famous titles, but it includes some marvelous reading.

If you didn’t read Marguerite Steen’s The Sun Is My Undoing when I reviewed it with the 1941 bestsellers, read it this year. It deserves top billing two years in a row—and it’s long enough for two year’s worth of reading. The other holdovers from 1941 (Windswept and The Keys of the Kingdom) are not even in the same league.

Here’s a list of the novels I’ll be reviewing in the next few weeks and the dates you can expect to see them:

  1. The Song of Bernadette by Franz Werfel [Apr. 4, 2012]
  2. The Moon is Down by John Steinbeck [Apr. 8, 2012]
  3. Dragon Seed by Pearl S. Buck [Apr. 15, 2012]
  4. And Now Tomorrow by Rachel Field [Apr. 18, 2012]
  5. Drivin’ Woman by Elizabeth Pickett [Apr. 22, 2012]
  6. Windswept by Mary Ellen Chase (second year on the bestseller list) [Apr. 25, 2012]
  7. The Robe by Lloyd C. Douglas [Apr. 29, 2012]
  8. The Sun Is My Undoing by Marguerite Steen (second year on the bestseller list) [May 2, 2012]
  9. King’s Row by Henry Bellamann [May 6, 2012]
  10. The Keys of the Kingdom by A. J. Cronin (second year on the bestseller list) [May 9, 2012]
