Book world hopes for literary breakthrough in the fall that cuts through the ‘Trump effect’ – Salt Lake Tribune

Bogaards says good books can “still surface and stick” and readers able and willing can look forward to some of the most acclaimed writers of recent years. Egan’s “Manhattan Beach” is her first novel since the Pulitzer Prize-winning “A Visit from the Goon Squad”; Ward’s “Sing, Unburied, Sing,” her first novel since the National Book Award winning “Salvage the Bones”; and James McBride’s book of short stories, “Five-Carat Soul,” his first fiction since winning the National Book Award for “The Good Lord Bird.” 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 “Middlesex” and “The Marriage Plot,” will release his first story collection, “Fresh Complaint.”
