A Bright New Season

September 4, 2021

Be prepared—September 2021 has some of the most extraordinary writers publishing new books of fiction, poetry, and essays. I would advise cleaning off that littered nightstand. Heavy hitters like Colm Tóibín, Lauren Groff, and Sally Rooney lead this week’s fiction selection alongside new books of narrative nonfiction by two of our most eloquent and relevant stylists. In addition, pre-orders are now open for one of the most highly anticipated fall releases: The 1619 Project: A New Origin Story edited by Nikole Hannah-Jones, based on her Pulitzer Prize-winning work published in The New York Times Magazine two years ago. The publication date is November 16.

Happy reading,
