lately. We thought that by now, we’d be blithely meeting up with friends in crowded indoor venues, without the need for proof of vaccinatio­n, masks or a care in the world.

To fill your bookshelf, Newsweek has put together our list of the most anticipate­d fiction and nonfiction due to arrive this fall.
