A Most Anticipated Book of 2023 by Elle, Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, them, Bustle, and The Millions Homebodies is an exciting debut novel about a young Black writer whose world is turned upside down when she loses her coveted job in media and writes a searing manifesto about racism in the industry.

3. The Collected Regrets of Clover by Mikki Brammer

This book is anticipated to be released on May 9, 2023 by St Martin's Press.

4. Yellowface by R.F. Kuang

What is wrong with using a pseudonym? In this terrifying and hilariously cutting novel by RF Kuang in the style of White Ivy and The Other Black Girl, the New York Times bestselling phenomenon Juniper Song is not who she claims to be, she didn't write the book she claims to have written, and she is most definitely not Asian American. Yellowface tackles issues of cultural appropriation, racism, and diversity in the publishing industry as well as the ongoing marginalization of Asian-American voices and history by Western white culture in its completely immersive first-person narration. The novel by RF Kuang is topical, razor-sharp, and extremely readable. The Borough Press is slated to release this book on May 25, 2023.

5. The Late Americans by Brandon Taylor

The author of the blockbuster Filthy Animals and the Booker Prize contender Real Life is back with a gripping new book about young people facing difficult choices. The Late Americans is Brandon Taylor's deepest and most compelling literary work to date, solidifying his status as one of our most insightful chroniclers of modern life. It is a novel about intimacy and precarity, friendship, and chosen family. On May 23, 2023, Riverhead Books is anticipated to release this book.
