The New Yorker has announced their once-in-a-decade "20 under 40" list of up-and-coming authors.

They are 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; and Wells Tower, 37.

If you're looking for a list of good writers, you could do much worse than start here. I've read something by all of these writers except for Bezmozgis, Li, Meyer, Obreht, and Russell, and while not all of them were The Best Books Ever, they were at least competently and artfully written.
