50 states of fiction

by Lara

In the midst of summer, we were delighted to read this rich and erudite article from the New York Times’ reporters recommending books that best depict their regions, and we strongly suggest you take a look at it if you haven’t already: Of Thee I Read: The United States in Literature.

Now, browsing our catalog, we couldn’t help but wonder at the wide range of novels and story collections written about the US. California, Texas, Louisiana… You can instantly picture a novel being set there. In that spirit we have compiled a selection of 50 fiction titles downloadable from our catalog, and added them on this map.

Feel free to browse, zoom in and discover which title we have selected for each state!
