12 of Our Authors on Granta Magazine’s Best of Young American Novelists List
Every ten years, Granta, a UK-based literary “magazine of new writing,” releases a list of authors deemed “the best young American novelists of their generation – writers of remarkable achievement and promise, still in their twenties and thirties.” Granta began this tradition in 1997.
Granta’s 2017 list of 21 writers, selected by Patrick deWitt, and our authors A.M. Homes, Kelly Link, Ben Marcus and Sigrid Rausing, Granta’s editor and publisher, includes 12 authors published by Penguin Random House:
Emma Cline, author of THE GIRLS (Random House)
Lauren Groff, author of FATES AND FURIES (Riverhead)
Yaa Gyasi, author of HOMEGOING (Knopf)
Garth Risk Hallberg, author of CITY ON FIRE (Knopf)
Sana Karasikov, author of THE PATRIOTS (Spiegel & Grau)
Karan Mahajan, author of THE ASSOCIATION OF SMALL BOMBS (Viking/Penguin)
Congratulations to our authors, their editors and publishers.
