No Comments

Hearing from publishers about the books coming out in the year ahead is one of the best things about my job as books editor . There are some real treats in store for book lovers this year, both from big name authors and dazzling debuts.

If you love thrillers, what could be better than a new novel from Lucy Foley? And fans of family dramas will be delighted to hear Anne Tyler has a new book out in April. Here are 22 of the most exciting new releases coming in 2022.

To Paradise by Hanya Yanagihara

Yanagihara is best-known for her 2015 hit A Little Life which is on many people’s top 10 books ever lists. This brand new book is a very different beast, split into three sections, all set in New York City 100 years apart. It opens in an alternate 1893 where New York will be part of the Free States, a nation separate to the rest of America, that allows gay marriage. The next part is set within 1993, during the AIDS epidemic and the final section, set in 2093, is about a world floored by pandemics.
