Introducing the Authors of Booktopia 2020:
A young congressman discovers a mysterious stuffed aardvark on his doorstep and sets out on a rip-roaring journey to find out what it means in this "weird, wonderful, and very much of the moment" ( Esquire ) novel about the secrets we keep from ourselves and their history-shaping consequences.

"Formidable, destined-to-be-studied...mark[s] the emergence of an extraordinary voice on race in America." -- O, The Oprah Magazine

A startling debut about class and race,  Lakewood  evokes a terrifying world of medical experimentation—part  The Handmaid’s Tale , part  The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks .

Our featured Booktopia alumnus presents a novel of conscience, love, and redemption—a fascinating fictionalized account of the life of Charlie Fisk, a gifted mathematician who was drafted into Manhattan Project and ordered against his morals to build the detonator for the atomic bomb.

The “splendid genre-pushing” ( People ) Vera Kelly series returns in full force as our recently out-of-the-spy-game heroine finds herself traveling from Brooklyn to a sprawling countryside estate in the Caribbean in her first case as a private investigator. 

A breathtaking and hypnotic novel about poison, antidotes, and obsessive love.

" Hex  is some dark and joyous witchery." --Lauren Groff

"A beautiful, spooky spell." --Jenny Slate, actress and author of  Little Weirds

The Comma Queen returns with the buoyant Greek to Me , a wise and funny paean to the art of self-expression, this time filtered through her greatest passion: all things Greek.

Molly Pohlig's  The Unsuitable  is a fierce blend of Gothic ghost story and Victorian novel of manners that’s also pitch perfect for our current cultural moment.

Craig Popelars, publisher of Tin House Books and Northshire's dear friend, will be Booktopia 2020's special guest and industry insider!
The mesmerizing story of a Latin American science fiction writer and the lives her lost manuscript unites decades later in post-Katrina New Orleans
