“The New York Times'” list of the Ten Best Books of the Year is the best such list I’ve encountered thus far. Half of the list is composed of fiction, a category that has been notably, and increasingly, dwindling from book lists. The rest of the “Times'” list is made up by non-fiction works that are international and introspective in their reach. Not a single book tries to explain the world in terms of money and its flow.
I’d only heard of two of the ten books on the list, one of which I am reading. My plan for 2016 is to read all ten. Can’t wait for January to begin.
