Five Books by Brooklyn Authors That We Can’t Wait to Read
The Local Lit to Look Out For in 2014
We can get behind the maxim of never judging a book by its cover (well, maybe we can; some books have pretty nice covers!), but we will happily judge people by the books they’re reading.
All of which is to say, if we ran across any of you on the subway reading one of these books, we would approve and probably want to be your friend. These are the five books (all by Brooklyn authors) that we’re most looking forward to reading this year. Three are debut novels, touching on such universally compelling topics as friendship, parenthood, and personal estrangement. One is a sprawling family drama that takes place during an overseas vacation. And one covers medieval Kabbalists, time travelers, and the value of a pizza coupon, making it probably the most relatable of them all.
