“Most Die Young”
by Camille Bordas
from the January 2, 2017 issue of The New Yorker

It’s not quite 2017, but The New Yorker is already going on its 2017 slate. They’re starting this year with a story from Camille Bordas, a young writer who is originally from France and has two novels published in French. She says, in her interview with Willing Davidson (here), that she started writing in English after moving to the United States in 2012. Next summer her English-language debut novel, How to Behave in a Crowd, is coming out.

So, a new year with a new voice. Please let me know what you think in the comments below! Here’s to great fiction in 2017!
