The Best Literature & Fiction of February



Editorial Director Sara Nelson says that our top pick for Literature & Fiction this month, A Doubter's Almanac, "is the kind of epic Best of the Monthstory we've read before--it's almost Biblical--and yet [Ethan] Canin makes it all seem new." (Yes, biblical. And this is not a woman prone to exaggeration!). "This sad but surprisingly buoyant novel about a family of brainiacs who are particularly good at math--and self-destruction" also happens to be our overall pick for the best books of February.

The rest of the fiction list includes a chilling, modern-day Little Red Riding Hood story, a dazzling historical novel about a famous opera singer with a checkered past, and the latest from beloved authors Yann Martel and Sebastian Faulks. Here are a few more of our favorites, and you can browse the full list here.
