The Lineup: Links for J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst’s S.

Oct 29, 2013 in Guest Posts, Weekly links

Contrasted ConfinementThe day has come! At long last, S., conceived by J.J Abrams and written by Doug Dorst, is in bookstores across the country and we can finally start spreading the word about just what Abrams and Dorst have unleashed on the world.

News about Abrams’ and Dorst’s novel has spread far and wide. CBS News has some highlights from this morning’s interview with J.J. and Doug right here, as well as bonus content that didn’t air on CBS This Morning. Publishers Weekly gives S. a starred review, proclaiming the novel “multilayered and complex,” and going on to write: “the Talmudic commentary fascinate[s]…a must-read.”

Elsewhere, the New York Times has both a By the Book with J.J. Abrams and a great interview with Abrams and Dorst. Another interview with Abrams can be found at the L.A. Times Jacket Copy blog. There are also some truly mesmerizing, hour-long transmissions from Radio Straka you can listen to here for some great background from the world of S.

Curious just how ornate a package you’ll be receiving if you pick up a copy? Check out our Look Inside video and see for yourself. We’re also running a Cipher contest that is your chance to win a lunch meeting with Abrams and Dorst in New York City. (Yes, you read that right.) And if you weren’t one of the two million views on Bad Robot’s Stranger video, or missed the full version of the announcement trailer of S., we’ve included the full version of the trailer below.

  2. Will there be an audiobook version? Or is this one of the few books that can’t make the transition to audio?
