NY Times’ Most Anticipated Books for Spring

This Spring’s Most Anticipated New Books, in Pictures

The artist Sophie von Hellermann, whose new solo show opens in London this summer, illustrates scenes from this season’s new releases.

Writers & Lovers
A novel by Lily King

And the toasts reveal everything: the rancor between the two families, the promiscuity, the unrequited loves, the bad behavior, the last-minute confessions — all delivered in drunken tangents that end with saccharine platitudes.

Having eschewed a more certain path in favor of the writing life, a 31-year-old waitress in 1990s Boston struggles to finish her first book despite her ever-ballooning debt and her sorrow over the recent death of her mother. As she does, she becomes involved with two men — one a successful novelist — and must decide what other bets to make on her future. To be published by Grove Press on March 3. See the full illustrated list at The New York Times Style Magazine.

Lily King’s Writers & Lovers is the first item on this list! Lily will be joining us for one of our exclusive Books and Breakfast events on April 21, 2020. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the event page.
