Best New Fiction is a book review site founded by alumni of the Queens MFA program. Published every Tuesday, it only reviews the novels and short stories that we think are great, so that it serves as an ongoing recommended reading list for people who love literature. And although we won’t hesitate to review Saunders’ or Tartt’s next work, we take particular delight in introducing writers who aren’t yet so well known. Whenever possible, we’ll include interviews with the authors and readings by them, and, always, we look forward to reading your comments. Best New Fiction is a place for book lovers to talk to each other and revel in well told tales.
Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become.
