Favorite Fiction, 2013

fave_fictionsw1.”A superbly written novel….McBride…transcends history and makes it come alive.”—The Chicago Tribune2.“Brilliantly written… a joy to read… Bleeding Edge is totally gonzo, totally wonderful. It really is good to have Thomas Pynchon around, doing what he does best.” –Washington Post.3.“A real tour de force [and] a beautiful fable…The reader is swept along by Sloan’s enthusiasm.”—George Saunders, BLIP4. Voted as one of “Ten Books to Restore Your Faith in Print” by Flavorpill5. “It is not a stretch to say that her finely observed new book, which combines perfectly calibrated social satire and heartfelt emotion, stands with Invisible Man and The Bluest Eye as a defining work about the experience of being black in America.”–Ruth Franklin, Bookforum, NY Times top 10 books of 2013

6. “City of Dark Magic” paperback, “This deliciously madcap novel has it all: murder in Prague, time travel, a misanthropic Beethoven, tantric sex, and a dwarf with attitude. I salute you, Magnus Flyte!”
—Conan O’ Brian.

7. “The Luminaries is a true achievement. Catton has built a lively parody of a 19th-century novel, and in so doing created a novel for the 21st, something utterly new. The pages fly.” — Bill Roorbach, New York Times Book Review.

8. The Circle is the exhilarating new novel from Dave Eggers, best-selling author of A Hologram for the King, a finalist for the National Book Award.
