Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week’s pre-publication can’t wait to read selection is:

 

By Nightfall by Michael Cunningham

Contemplating an affair that never was, SoHo art dealer Peter Harris laments that he “could see it all too clearly.” The same holds true for Cunningham’s emotionally static and drearily conventional latest (after Specimen Days). Peter and his wife, Rebecca–who edits a mid-level art magazine–have settled into a comfortable life in Manhattan’s art world, but their staid existence is disrupted by the arrival of Rebecca’s much younger brother, Ethan–known as Mizzy, short for “The Mistake.” Family golden child Mizzy is a recovering drug addict whose current whim has landed him in New York where he wants to pursue a career in “the arts.” Watching Mizzy–whose resemblance to a younger Rebecca unnerves Peter–coast through life without responsibilities makes Peter question his own choices and wonder if it’s more than Mizzy’s freedom that he covets.
This title will be released on September 28, 2010.
