Fall is the most wonderful time of the year for book lovers: Publishers save their best titles for this season in an attempt to get their authors onto year-end best-of lists and holiday gift guides. This year brings a wide range of great books by authors old and new: the last writings of Christopher Hitchens and a debut novel by Emma Straub; the next installment in The Passage trilogy and J.K. Rowling's first novel for adults; Jessica Valenti's thoughts on parenting and Naomi Wolf's reflections on female anatomy; and more. Below, a look at the 20 titles we're most looking forward to:
