Members of the First Editions Club receive a signed first edition of a new work of fiction by an emerging author who shows exceptional talent and promise. Our club has been going strong, and growing, for nearly 12 years. It’s been exciting to see many of our selected authors emerge in a big way. We’ve been early champions of young writers whose work has continued to garner critical attention and praise, including Khaled Hosseini, Daniel Alarcón, Yiyun Li, Ben Fountain, Rachel Kushner, Nathan Englander, Dinaw Mengestu, Paul Harding, Joshua Ferris, and Emily St. John Mandel.

Our May 2015 pick, The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen, was awarded the 2016 Pulitzer Prize in Fiction. And that followed Anthony Doerr who won the Pulitzer for his magnificent novel All the Light We Cannot See, which was our April 2014 selection. Two of our 2016 picks were longlisted for the National Book Award—The Portable Veblen by Elizabeth McKenzie and News of the World by Paulette Jiles.

Members tell us that the First Editions Club has introduced them to books and authors that they wouldn’t have discovered on their own. We can’t promise an award winner every time, but we can promise a diverse selection of wonderful reading.
