THE BOSTON GLOBE PICKS ITS BEST SIX FICTION TITLES FOR 2007
The Welsh Girl - Peter Ho Davies
Falling Man - Don DeLillo
The Gathering - Anne Enright
On Chesil Beach - Ian McEwan
Cheating at Canasta - William Trevor
Everyone is making up their best lists right now, the NZ Listener this week has pages and pages devoted to the best books under various categories. I have read four of the six titles above, missed those by Don DeLillo and Denis Johnson.
Perhaps we should run our own Best Of? Anyone want to have a go?
Coincidentally Adam Mars-Jones reviewed Tree of Smoke in The Guardian overnight. Read it here.
By the way I notice that Tree of Smoke also made the New York Times best novels of 2007 list. Must get hold of a copy.
