Just looking at the recent keyword searches that led people to this site, it’s clear that more than a few inquisitive minds have been trying to figure out the identity of the mysterious book released by Hachette on May 28 called UNTITLED by UNKNOWN (as previewed in my previous post). Well, friends, I can save you the trouble, as I’ve tried every possible Google search term to find it and have come up short.
As for the other title I previewed, Simon and Schuster’s Untitled on China, well, things get a little easier. The details of the book were inadvertently revealed to booksellers a few weeks ago, when online buying group Leading Edge published the details of the book on their site (available only to booksellers). We were urged to keep the identity of the book a secret, and that is something I shall uphold. That said, Isonerpray of the Atestay by Haozay Iyangzay should make for very interesting reading (I think impenetrable codes are allowed…).
And for those who can’t read Pig Latin—or who don’t want to lest they contract a rare strain of grammerian flu—you can always visit Simon and Schuster’s American site, where the details of the book are available in full.
