I love it when I discover a new author whose voice sounds so fresh and clear it’s like the very first novel I’ve ever read. Since it’s so challenging for debut writers to get people to take a chance on their book and find a readership it feels especially important to support fresh talent. So, following on from the top debut novels of 2016 list I made last year, here is a list of ten debut novels published in 2017 that I found especially good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lenlmi_vuNc&t=5s I really hope these authors continue to publish more because they have such unique points of view and refreshing writing styles. It’s also worth noting that Sally Rooney’s “Conversations with Friends” won this year’s Sunday Times/Peters Fraser & Dunlop Young Writer of the Year Award. Please let me know in the comments about any particularly exciting debut novels you've read this year.
