Buzz Books 2024: Spring/Summer is the 24th volume in our popular sampler series. This Buzz Books presents passionate readers with an insider’s look at nearly sixty of the buzziest books due out this season. Such major bestselling authors as Ally Condie, Christina Dodd, Emiko Jean, and Liz Moore are featured, along with literary figures like Mateo Askaripour, Abi Daré, Alison Espach, Lisa Ko, Peter Nichols and more.
Buzz Books has had a particularly stellar track record with highlighting the most talented, exciting and diverse debut authors, and this edition is no exception. Rita Bullwinkel, editor at large for McSweeney’s and deputy editor of The Believer, offers a novel on women boxer, while Lily Samson’s title has already been preempted by Sony Pictures Television. One YA and two nonfiction authors make their adult fiction debuts: Kristen Perrin, Mary Annaïse Heglar and Kate Young, respectively.  Among others are Essie Chambers, Katelyn Doyle, Alejandro Puyana, and Rachel Rueckert.
Our robust nonfiction section covers such important subjects as suicide and combating racist biases; several memoirs about harrowing childhoods and illnesses; and a biography of the first Asian-American woman pilot to fly during World War II.
Finally, we present early looks at new work from young adult authors, including the New York Times bestselling Tracey Baptiste and Morgan Matson. The YA titles also represent more diversity than ever, with Aboriginal, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Malaysian and Trinidadian novelists.
And be sure to look out for Buzz Books 2024: Fall/Winter, coming in May, for next season’s most talked about books.
