A sampling from Publishers Weekly’s list of the spring’s most-anticipated literary fiction.











  1. The American People, Vol. I: Search for My Heart by Larry Kramer. Kirkus calls this sweeping, satirical look at the U.S. “breathtakingly well-written.”

  2. The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro. A bewitching tale of love, human nature, and the power of memory. [Click here to read the Independent’s review.]

  3. God Help the Child by Toni Morrison. The Nobel laureate’s latest work centers on a woman called Bride and the mysterious youngster she encounters.

  4. In the Unlikely Event by Judy Blume. A multi-generational tale inspired by a series of real-life plane crashes in the 1950s.

  5. Welcome to Braggsville by T. Geronimo Johnson. When well-intentioned but naïve undergrads journey to the South to stage an anti-lynching protest, the results are disastrous.

  6. A God in Ruins by Kate Atkinson. This companion to the time-jumping, WWII-era Life after Life chronicles the fictional Todd family from a different POV.
