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)

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.

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

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.
