Better Stories


Books for Unprecedented Times

The books that came out in 2020, were defined by an unusual year. Racial reckonings, political upheavals, a pandemic that shook the world and a US Election that was both historic and unnerving in its outcome, found its way into literature. This has also been a year of diverse books that helped unpack the baggage of race, religion, gender, sexuality and so many more tabooed subjects. Here are some of the best works of 2020, clearly inviting their readers to step out of their comfort zones and meet the authors in their personal realms.
