What is New Adult Fiction? March 9, 2016

It seems like we are bombarded with more labels just when the world seems to be shedding old, worn ones. Labels are meant to be useful tools, and despite our preference to rid ourselves of them, they do serve a purpose.

For example: New Adult fiction is geared for readers 18 to about 25, sometimes as old as 30, who have outgrown Young Adult fiction, which is based on high school aged protagonists.

The description as per EBSCO’s NoveList is rather long, so I have included the site address for more information, a partial description is as follows; *”This fledgling category is a result of the perceived dearth of novels featuring characters in a post-adolescent but not quite adult phase of life, as well as the growing trend of young adult “crossovers,” or YA novels that also appeal to an adult audience. These novels aim to bring the emotionally-intense story lines and fast-paced plotting of young adult fiction to stories that focus on a new range of experiences in life beyond the teenage years.”

Some of the New Adult fiction we have here at the library:

iamradarI Am Radar, by Reif Larsen

Twisted Innocence, by Terrie Blackstock

Falling for Autumn, by Heather Topham Wood

Casebook, by Mona Simpson

The Child’s Child, by Barbara Vine

The Irresistible Henry House, by Lisa Grunwald

Indignation, by Philip Roth
