Mahriana Rofheart | 84 comments yikes - I really need to do some catching up! I don't know a lot of these, and I've only read something by one of them! Thanks so much for this list. It's great.

Nina Chachu | 205 comments I hadn't seen this list before. Here is a link to the first of the 10 or actually 11 http://flavorwire.com/186592/10-young... I think I have read something from six of them, and have two on my TBR shelves, but there are some I haven't heard of.

So thanks for pointing this out Marieke!

Amalie Thanks so much for posting this. I'm not familiar with any unfortunately but now I'll be on the look out for their work.

Thanks, Amalie! i was happy to find it myself. i may try to get something semi-organized going here at the group (in addition to the Tour) that focuses on authors such as these...

Ming | 2 comments Granta just issued a list of 20 young British novelists. It's a pretty diverse group. http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2013/...

Thanks, Ming! A good reminder I still haven't read the Helen Oyeyi book I bought ages and ages ago.....
