NBF Names 5 (Women) Under 35 – Publishers Lunch

NBF Names 5 (Women) Under 35 – Publishers Lunch.

The National Book Foundation announced their closely-watched list of 5 Under 35 authors — and “for the first time, the group of authors are all women.” Two of the featured authors are not scheduled to publish until 2014: Rona Jaffe Award winner Merritt Tierce’s Love Me Back (Doubleday, fall 2014) and Stegner Fellow Molly Antopol’s The UnAmericans (Norton, February 2014).

One title does not have an announced US publisher yet: Daisy Hildyard’s Hunters in the Snow, published by Jonathan Cape in the UK this summer.

The other two were both highlighted/excerpted in previous Publishers Lunch Buzz Books collections: Current Booker nominee NoViolet Bulawayo’s We Need New Names and Amanda Coplin’s BN Discover Awards winner The Orchardist.
