Best Books 2008 & IndCat

Best Books 2008
By Ann Burns, Margaret Heilbrun, Barbara Hoffert, Anna Katterjohn, Heather McCormack, Mirela Roncevic, & Wilda Williams -- Library Journal, 12/15/2008

Listen up, Barack Obama! You'll find useful reading on LJ's annual Best Books list, from Stephen Hess's What Do We Do Now? A Workbook for the President-Elect to Mahvish Rukhsana Khan's My Guantánamo Diary: The Detainees and the Stories They Told Me and Raja Shehadeh's Palestinian Walks: Forays into a Vanishing Landscape. It's not all politics, though. From fiction debuts by Uwem Akpan, Nam Le, and Saša Stanišic´ to works from masters Toni Morrison, Philip Roth, and Marilynne Robinson, from a biography of Shakespeare's wife to a chronicle of Sixties "girls like us," and from accounts of divorce and madness to hot thrillers and cool how-to, this list has enough to occupy anyone for the coming year. article/CA661883 7.html
