Perhaps there has never been another year we wanted so badly to see end than Protected content only because Protected content to be a literary gold mine (though Protected content offerings were pretty great, too).

There’s an abundance of fiction, including exciting debuts by up-and-coming writers like Cherie Jones, Gabriela Garcia, and Susan Mihalic. There are splendid new novels by well-established writers Patricia Engel, Andrea Lee, Viet Thanh Nguyen, Jhumpa Lahiri, and Chang Rae Lee, among others. Hollywood is well represented with books by Ethan Hawke, Cicely Tyson, Sharon Stone, Mike Nichols, Julianna Margulies, and Gabriel Byrne.

Many of the standouts on our list grapple with race, identity, legacy, loss, and resilience, including a powerful new work of nonfiction by Charles Blow. Our very own Oprah teams up with a leading neuroscientist for a book exploring the aftereffects of childhood trauma. The legendary Joan Didion offers essays that encapsulate an era and remind us of her early, gargantuan talents. And the insanely brilliant George Saunders examines life, reading, and teaching through the lens of four of his favorite Russian short story writers. If that sounds daunting, it’s not—it’s pure joy.
