Riffle Editor's Choice: Essential Fiction Books for August 2015


Here are just a couple of this month's releases that I'm looking forward to! This August has several new books coming from debut and seasoned authors alike, and notably has a lot of titles coming from female voices. Almost all my picks for this month tell stories about a woman's perspective. I can't wait to dig into some of these new novels! So without further ado, here are my choices for the month:

  • The Daughters by Adrienne Celt -- August 3rd
  • Let Me Tell You: New Stories, Essays, and Other Writings by Shirley Jackson -- August 4th
  • Make Your Home Among Strangers by Jennine Capo Crucet -- August 4th
  • The Marriage of Opposites by Alice Hoffman -- August 4th
  • The State We're In: Maine Stories by Ann Beattie -- August 11th
