As any book lover knows, discovering a talented author with their first work of fiction is a special feeling. Think Alice Sebold and The Lovely Bones, Zadie Smith and White Teeth or Kathryn Stockett and The Help. In our August issue, which hits shelves (and our website) today, we’re highlighting 12 exciting new voices in two interviews and a feature. In today’s contest, you can win books by four of them! Click on each book jacket to learn more.
