JJ, an editorial assistant at St. Martin's Press (the first publishing house to identify the genre in 2009), says: "there is a gap in the current adult market–the literary fiction market–for fiction about twentysomethings. You never stop growing up, I think, but little in the market seems to address the coming-of-age that also happens in your 20s." Whether you are a twentysomething looking for fiction to reflect your reality or just intrigued by the birth of a new genre, here are some likely titles you can check out from the library catalog!
