It's been over ten years since The New Yorker published its "20 Under 40" list of promising writers. The last edition featured stories by David Foster Wallace, Michael Chabon, Jeffrey Eugenides, Jhumpa Lahiri and 16 others, many of whom continue to write acclaimed fiction. After a long selection process, the new issue hits newsstands today, full of prose and promise.

Rivka Galchen is featured in the list. Her story is titled: “The Entire Northern Side Was Covered with Fire.” She's also the author of the novel Atmospheric Disturbances.
