The list for the Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Selection has been announced with A J Finn, Jamie Quatro, and Tara Westover all being featured. The award is open to writers who have published under three books and who haven’t received an award before. Entries are submitted by publishers and selected by B & N booksellers. An independent panel of distinguished writers then chooses the winners and finalists, presenting a total of $105,000 to six young writers across fiction and non-fiction categories.

A J Finn’s debut novel, The Woman in the Window, which has sold in 37 languages, has been included in the 2018 selection.

As has Jamie Quatro’s debut novel, Fire Sermon, which has been described by Lilly King as ‘an exquisite story of female desire, faith, and commitment and one of the most haunting portraits of a marriage I’ve ever read.’

Educated by Tara Westover, also a debut novel which has sold in 21 languages so far, is also featured in the selection
