2017′s best books thus far, from tearjerkers to titles Rahm should read – Chicago Tribune

American publishing, like Hollywood, tends to hold its prestige releases for the fall. In the summer we get superhero movies and beach reads, but potential prizewinners will make their way into the world in September and beyond.

Fall will see new books from Jesmyn Ward, Jennifer Egan, Jeffrey Eugenides and Nicole Krauss. Best-selling literary fiction writers Celeste Ng and Tom Perrotta have new books on the horizon. And for those on the more populist end of things, Andy Weir will be releasing his follow-up to “The Martian.”

But as I look back on my reading from the first half of the year — unlike Hollywood, which really does have fallow periods — every week is a good week for new books.
