A trio of literary heavyweights top our to- read list this month, starting with a new fantasy novel from J.R.R. Tolkien.
Yes, that J.R.R. Tolkien. A lost manuscript from The Lord of the Rings author has arrived but be warned: this isn’t your classic “Hobbit-riffic” tale. The Story of Kullervo is a much bleaker revenge tale about a magical orphan slave’s quest to avenge his father’s death that many liken to one of Tolkien’s other posthumous tomes, The Silmarillion. Sure to be a bestseller, you may wonder if it’s worth walking across Middle Earth to get your hands on a copy. You’ll have to read it to find out.
