2017 FSG NYTBRWe can’t help but notice a trend—Farrar, Straus & Giroux titles have been dominating the cover of the New York Times Book Review for the past month!

SIX FOUR by Hideo Yokohama (February 26 issue)
“Superb… This novel is a real, out-of-the-blue original. I’ve never read anything like it. Yokoyama has written five previous novels and several collections of short fiction, and this is his first book to be translated into English… On the evidence of SIX FOUR, he’s a master.” — Terrence Rafferty

THE DARK FLOOD RISES by Margaret Drabble (February 19 issue)
“This humane and masterly novel by one of Britain’s most dazzling writers is…deeper than mere philosophy: a praisesong for the magical human predicament exactly as it has been ordained on Earth.” — Cynthia Ozick

THIS CLOSE TO HAPPY: A Reckoning With Depression by Daphne Merkin (February 5 issue)
“She narrated what happened to her and how it felt. And she does so with insight, grace, and excruciating clarity, in exquisite and sometimes darkly humorous prose. It is standard fare to say books on depression are brave, but this one actually is. It is an important addition to the literature on mental illness.” — Andrew Solomon

TRANSIT by Rachel Cusk (January 29 issue)
“It’s a risky business, this summing up. Show, don’t tell, say the creative writing manuals. Cusk has torn up the rule book, and in the process created a work of stunning beauty, deep insight and great originality.” — Monica Ali
