Featured Titles from W. W. Norton & Company

01 Zakaria_WWNorton


Written in the form of ten “lessons,” covering topics from natural and biological risks to the rise of “digital life” to an emerging bipolar world order, Zakaria helps readers to begin thinking beyond the immediate effects of COVID-19 and speaks to past, present, and future, and, while urgent and timely.

02 Birdsall_WWNorton


This biography brings to life a towering figure, a man who still represents the best in eating and yet has never been fully understood—until now. A celebrated writer fills in Beard’s life with the color and meaning earlier generations were afraid to examine.

03 Lepore_WWNorton


The Simulmatics Corporation, launched during the Cold War, mined data, targeted voters, manipulated consumers, destabilized politics, and disordered knowledge—decades before Facebook, Google, and Cambridge Analytica. Jill Lepore came across the company’s papers in MIT’s archives and set out to tell this forgotten history, the long-lost backstory to the methods, and the arrogance, of Silicon Valley.

04 Buttigieg_WWNorton

An urgent call to foster an “American way of trust” at this painfully polarized juncture in the nation’s history, Trust is a direct reckoning with the prevailing corruption of social responsibility. Trust seeks to inspire Americans to build a powerful movement that will define all of us in the years to come.

05 Payne_WWNorton


With a biographer’s unwavering determination, Les & Tamara Payne correct the historical record and delivers extraordinary revelations. An epic biography of Malcolm X finally emerges, drawing on hundreds of hours of the author’s interviews, rewriting much of the known narrative.

06 Singer_WWNorton


“Peter Singer may be the most controversial philosopher alive; he is certainly among the most influential.” —The New Yorker
In a world reeling from a global pandemic, never has a treatise on veganism—from our foremost philosopher on animal rights—been more relevant or necessary.

07 Valdez Quade_WWNorton


This is the novel we’ve been waiting for from Kirstin Valdez Quade, whose debut story collection, NIGHT AT THE FIESTAS, received an NBCC award. FIVE WOUNDS originates from a story of the same name from FIESTAS which the New York Times Book Review called “one of three legitimate masterpieces” in the book.

08 Gurganus_WWNorton


One of “the best writers of our time” (Ann Patchett) offers this hilarious yet haunting cycle of stories-all previously uncollected. Written over several decades, the stories are packed with extraordinary drama and the brilliant dialogue for which Allan Gurganus is known.
