Book Soup Bestsellers in Fiction Hardcover, March 15 - 23

A Listmania! list by Thelma Adams
The list author says: "With my first novel out, I'm all about fiction these days. I tend to read a lot of mysteries, but I'm definitely branching out into contemporary women's fiction. My favorite novelists include, but aren't limited to, Evelyn Waugh, P. G. Wodehouse, Graham Greene, E. M. Forester, Jane Austen, Virginia Woolf, V. S. Naipaul, Zora Neale Hurston, Denise Mina, Ian Rankin and Alan Furst. I love clear but not brittle prose and books that meet at the crossroads of head and heart."
