Waterstone’s Taps Its Literary Next Generation

If Granta‘s Best of Young American Novelists list wasn’t enough future fodder, then chew on the group of 25 youngish authors that Waterstone’s has assembled, which includes Naomi Alderman, Guatam Malkani, C.J. Sansom, Louise Welsh, Charlotte Mendelsohn, Jasper Fforde and many others.
