Here is a quick rundown of new books, reissues, and assorted other things that I especially enjoyed this year which also happened to be published this year. They aren’t in any particular order, though fiction is more toward the top and nonfiction toward the bottom. Imre Kertesz’ Fiasco stands out as perhaps the most significant to me of the lot.

I’m using Amazon integration not because of any strong desire to do so, but because I could not find another tool that allowed me to list a collection easily and had access to the covers and data for most of the books on the list. I’m not making any affiliate money whatsoever from this. The links are there for convenience only.

Even still, there are missing books. One is Wendy Walker’s mysterious, uncanny My Man and Other Critical Fictions.
