Favorite Novels of 2009 (in no particular order)


Dennis Lehane's The Given Day

Craig McDonald's Toros & Torsos (actually autumn 2008, but only got around to it a couple months ago)

James Sallis's Salt River (UK paperback edition)

Dennis Johnson's Nobody Move

George Pelecanos' The Way Home

Megan Abbott's Bury Me Deep

Wu Ming's Manituana

Attica Locke's Black Water Rising

Massimo Carlotto and Marco Videtta's Poisonville

Darmenico Starnone's First Execution



Book of the year

Jonathan Lethem's Chronic City- part Philip K. Dick, part early Pynchon and part Wyndham Lewis's Apes of God, but mostly just Lethem at his very best.


Away in London until the new year, so blogging will be very sporadic, if at all.http://www.facebook.com/facebook-widgets/share.php
