20 favorite writers under 40


The New Yorker released their list of 20 favorite writers under 40. I'm not sure what importance to give this list, as I've never been a huge fan of the gilded, slightly esoteric and irrelevant publication, but Chimamanda made it, so I guess that's good. Although, notwithstanding ChiChi, I am also slightly skeptical of writers cosigned by the mainstream American literary establishment.

I was actually surprised that wonderboy Junot Diaz wasn't on it, but maybe he's already 40.
