Barnes & Noble named the debut novel,  No One is Coming to Save Us by Stephanie Powell Watts as one of their “great new writers pick” for 2017.

It’s a Kirkus STARRED review which calls it “[t]he Great Gatsby . . .  revived. . .”

Watts is an associate professor of English at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.  She is the recipient of a Whiting Award, a Pushcart Prize, and the Southern Women’s Writers Award for Emerging Writer of the Year.

She also has a short story collection We Are Taking Only What We Need.

If the title didn’t catch you without being a spoiler, it is the story of pursuing the “American Dream” among blacks in the South.  It went on sale 4/4/17.  The book is available in print, audio, and e-book.   She is also on book tour.
