New Yorker Releases 20-Best-Under-40 List

The New Yorker released it’s list of the best (or most worth-watching or coolest or hippest or whatever criteria) writers under the age of 40. The list is in conjunction with the magazine’s special double-literature issue that will be released this coming Monday.

Here’s the rundown of the names (along with ages) courtesty of The New York Times:
–Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, 32
–Chris Adrian, 39
–Daniel Alarcón, 33
–David Bezmozgis, 37
–Sarah Shun-lien Bynum, 38
–Joshua Ferris, 35
–Jonathan Safran Foer, 33
–Nell Freudenberger, 35
–Rivka Galchen, 34
–Nicole Krauss, 35
–Yiyun Li, 37
–Dinaw Mengestu, 31
–Philipp Meyer, 36
–C. E. Morgan, 33
–Téa Obreht, 24
–Z Z Packer, 37
–Karen Russell, 28
–Salvatore Scibona, 35
–Gary Shteyngart, 37
–Wells Tower, 37

I’m now awaiting with baited breath Old Lady Johnson’s List of the Worst Under 14, sure to represent the students most worth-watching as they dangle participles and end sentences in prepositions in 8th grade composition classes.
