Wall Street Journal–This season, many publishers are counting on star-studded fall catalogues to turn around a dismal year. Battered by the drop in consumer spending, most major publishing houses have cut staff and trimmed costs in recent months.

Publishers often save their splashiest works for the autumn months, but this year’s crop of fall books is unusually heavy with big names. The releases run across the literary spectrum, from Dan Brown’s sequel to “The Da Vinci Code,” which kicks of with a massive first printing of 6.5 million copies, to a final, posthumous work by Vladimir Nabokov.
