    Posted Jul 18th 2010, 12:00am by James Kidd

    ... James Kidd Picture Perfect by Jodi Picoult Hodder, HK$104 Here's how to bake a successful literary re-issue. Take a best-selling author with a large back catalogue (Harlan Coben, Maeve Binchy, Jodi Picoult), and pour their formative work all over an unsuspecting reading public. Voila- an easy-to-make profit. What makes the cake stink is how poorly signposted ...

    ... Charmaine Chan Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult Hodder, HK$115 Jodi Picoult chooses her topics well. Her timing, however, is just luck: Nineteen Minutes came out in hardback a few days after the Virginia Tech shootings in the US, where Cho Seung-hui killed 32 people before committing suicide.

    ... Edwina Mendes The Point of Rescue by Sophie Hannah Hodder & Stoughton, HK$214 Sophie Hannah's first novel, 2006's Little Face, was a rare thing in modern publishing: a debut from an unknown author that didn't win any prizes or garner the endorsement of a TV chat show, yet still became a best-seller- the book succeeded simply because of the quality ...
