12/10/2021: Time Magazine Chooses the 10 Best Fiction Books of 2021

We were blessed with new work from a buzzy roster of titans, from Colson Whitehead to Lauren Groff to Kazuo Ishiguro. But, while they, along with several others, did not disappoint [see TIME’s list of the 100 Must-Read Books of 2021, here.] it was debut authors who truly shined. In an industry that has long been criticized for exclusion—and where it’s increasingly difficult to break out from the crowd—a crop of bright new voices rose to the top.

Below are Time Magazine's choices for the 10 Best Fiction Books of 2021. Reviews and more information here.
