You could certainly do worse than to read all of the books on this list. In fact, on a second look, I'd start with #12 and work backwards.


I quite agree, especially when compared to the New York Times bestselling fiction titles--here's their top 5 as of today:


Top 5 at a Glance
1. FOR ONE MORE DAY, by Mitch Albom
2. THIRTEEN MOONS, by Charles Frazier
3. MOTOR MOUTH, by Janet Evanovich
4. THE BOOK OF FATE, by Brad Meltzer
5. THE THIRTEENTH TALE, by Diane Setterfield

I was pointing out that the Politics + Prose list was noteworthy, though I would mix up the order: start with the Messud, then Adichie, then Nemirovsky and on to either Boyd or McDermott --both titles on my to be read pile.

Have you read the LeCarre?


No, but I eagerly read the excerpt from Albom's book in last week's PARADE magazine!

Okay, I didn't.

I think my father read the LeCarre (or if not this one, the previous one) and really liked it. I have got to pick up something by LeCarre -- he's supposed to be great whether you're a literary snob or, well, not a literary snob.


What, you didn't read Albom at Starbucks when you were waiting for your skim no whip double latte? Remember, he's the first author they've chosen to promote--and at my local Starucks the books are going like..well, hotcakes...
