You think it’s hard to get a book published now, imagine how hard it is to get one published when you’re dead. But these authors did it, and here’s a list of seven books published posthumously to help you click off that box on the BookRiot Read Harder challenge.
I personally recommend The Opposite of Loneliness. Marina was a recent graduate of Yale, my alma mater, when she passed away in a car accident. She had such a bright future ahead of her and this work, published and compiled after her death, really shows that.

I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara
A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole
The Last Tycoon by F Scott Fitzgerald
