Book world hopes for literary breakthrough in the fall that cuts through the ‘Trump effect’ – Salt Lake Tribune
Bogaards says good books can â€œstill surface and stickâ€ and readers able and willing can look forward to some of the most acclaimed writers of recent years. Eganâ€™s â€œManhattan Beachâ€ is her first novel since the Pulitzer Prize-winning â€œA Visit from the Goon Squadâ€; Wardâ€™s â€œSing, Unburied, Sing,â€ her first novel since the National Book Award winning â€œSalvage the Bonesâ€; and James McBrideâ€™s book of short stories, â€œFive-Carat Soul,â€ his first fiction since winning the National Book Award for â€œThe Good Lord Bird.â€ Louise Erdrich, Celeste Ng, Salman Rushdie, Carmen Maria Machado and debut novelist Gabriel Tallent also have books coming. Pulitzer Prize winner Jeffrey Eugenides, whose novels include â€œMiddlesexâ€ and â€œThe Marriage Plot,â€ will release his first story collection, â€œFresh Complaint.â€
