The New Yorker picks the best 20 writers under 40...I'm not one of them.

But neither was I expecting to be. Congrats to those who did make the cut, though. This list hasn't been done in a decade so it's kind of a big deal.

You can check out an article in the New York Times which lists the authors chosen and has some interesting quotes from authors who were on the last list in 1997. Authors like DFW and Junot Diaz and Michael Chabon.

The list will be released officially in the New Yorker's Fiction issue coming out next month, but for now just read the article and dream about being on the list next decade when The New Yorker does it again.
