Unsheltered: A Novel 

Barbara Kingsolver

Harper (October)

“Kingsolver’s meticulously observed, elegantly structured novel unites social commentary with gripping storytelling…Containing both a rich story and a provocative depiction of times that shake the shelter of familiar beliefs, this novel shows Kingsolver at the top of her game.” – Publishers Weekly (starred review)



Ball Lightning: A Novel 

Cixin Liu

TOR Books  ( August )

Cixin Lu’s Ball Lightning is a fast-paced story of what happens when the beauty of scientific inquiry runs up against the drive to harness new discoveries with no consideration of their possible consequences.



Gone So Long: A Novel 

Andre Dubus III

W.W. Norton (October)

Gone So Long is an astonishment. I love this book so much, the humanity in it. I love every single person in it, they are so real, these people―I know them and love them all. I wept for them, I did. Dubus is just so good and real and true, he doesn’t pull one sentimental punch the whole time―extraordinary.”
– Elizabeth Strout, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Olive Kitteridge



An Absolutely Remarkable Thing: A Novel 

Hank Green

Dutton (September)

Compulsively entertaining and powerfully relevant, An Absolutely Remarkable Thing grapples with big themes, including how the social internet is changing fame, rhetoric, and radicalization; how our culture deals with fear and uncertainty; and how vilification and adoration spring from the same dehumanization that follows a life in the public eye.
