10 Fiction Books To Look for in 2021

Viet Thanh Nguyen’s upcoming book, The Committed is featured in this list by Kirkus Review.

We all know a new year is just a random marker in time, but I can’t help feeling hopeful as we enter 2021. Perhaps we’ll all have a little more brain space to devote to reading fiction—and there are a lot of exciting books to look forward to.

The Committed by Viet Thanh Nguyen (Grove, March 2): The spy from Nguyen’s Pulitzer Prize–winning The Sympathizer (2015) goes to Paris in 1981, pondering philosophy while working for a drug kingpin. Our starred review calls it “a quirky intellectual crime story that highlights the Vietnam War’s complex legacy.”
