New & Noteworthy Fiction

Brilliant essayist though she was, Virginia Woolf preferred fiction. She wrote, “However interesting facts may be, they are an inferior form of fiction, and gradually we become impatient of their weakness and diffuseness, of their compromises and evasions, of the slovenly sentences which they make for themselves, and are eager to revive ourselves with the greater intensity and truth of fiction.” Below are some of the new, newly relevant, and forthcoming novels we’re most enjoying—free of slovenly sentences.
