EW EAGERLY AWAITS
PREY Michael Crichton (HarperCollins, $26.95, on sale Nov. 25) After writing so many novels about man meddling with nature, Crichton has cowritten a book about the transformation of the American family with his wife, Tipper. No, wait… that’s Al Gore. Sorry. Crichton’s new book is about man meddling with nature.
JOINED AT THE HEART Al and Tipper Gore (Holt, $26, on sale Nov. 12) After losing the presidency in 2000, Al Gore has cowritten a book about the transformation of the American family with his wife, Tipper.
STAR QUALITY Joan Collins (Hyperion, $23.95, on sale Nov. 13) In Collins’ new trashy novel, one poor character marries her half brother by mistake. As if that weren’t trouble enough, turns out he’s gay, too. Sounds like a good read.
