the important and the not-so-important, horribly conflated.

The Tiger’s Wife

In books on June 6, 2010 at 9:29 pm

The New Yorker is coming out with its “20 under 40” Fiction Issue this month. It’s sort of a big deal. The youngest author on the list is Tea Obreht, whose debut piece last summer was just about perfect [the tiger’s wife (pdf)].

Of the other young guns, I highly recommend Wells Tower (Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned), Chris Adrian (The Children’s Hospital), and Joshua Ferris (The Unnamed).
