RICHARD DAWKINS smashes your faith with The God Delusion (Houghton Mifflin, October 18). If that leaves you down, sniff those tears away while reading Moving the Chains: Tom Brady and the Pursuit of Everything (Hill & Wang, November 1), Boston writer and wit CHARLES P. PIERCE ’s tribute to the other god of New England.
Look for big new selected-and-collected volumes from JAMES FENTON, C.K. WILLIAMS, and ROBERT LOWELL, as well as a new translation of the Aeneid by ROBERT FAGLES. GALWAY KINNELL ’s Strong Is Your Hold (Houghton Mifflin, November 8) features a CD of his throaty readings. PAUL MULDOON ’s Horse Latitudes (FSG, October 3) has no audio and doesn’t need it, so powerful is the Irishman’s musical verse.
