New and Notable Book Trailers
Often times, book trailers leave something to be desired. There's even the Moby Awards, which celebrate the best and worst of them (mostly the worst). But every once in a while, we come across a trailer that's not necessarily good or bad, but are notable for other reasons.
Do you love The Wire as much as we do? A few of us in the office--Ali, Jessica, Lynette, me--are constantly talking about how it's the greatest television show of all time. So when actor Dominic West showed up in this book trailer, reading an excerpt from Charles Cumming's The Trinity Six, we collectively swooned at his British accent and his handsomely (but permanently) furrowed brow, which occasionally stares right at the camera, right into our souls.
I don't have kids, but I suddenly wish I did, so I wouldn't look ridiculous playing with Herve Tullet's Press Here. Does anyone have a small child I could borrow for the day? Anyone?
I don't quite understand what's going on in the book trailer for Matthew Sharpe's novel You Were Wrong, but I'll admit, anything with the Fiery Furnaces in the background gets an automatic plug from me. There are also a handful more in this series of videos on Matthew Sharpe's website.
