Favorite Books at the LA Times

This weekend the Los Angeles Times runs its annual Favorite Books issue with the following categories represented:

  • Fiction & Poetry
  • Nonfiction
  • * Paperbacks (Richard Rayner) * Children’s and Picture Books (Sonja Bolle) * Science Fiction (Ed Park) * Mysteries (Sarah Weinman)

    My list stretches the concept just a bit, since I include Lewis Shiner’s BLACK & WHITE, Stewart O’Nan’s SONGS FOR THE MISSING and a non-fiction title, Leonard Cassuto’s HARDBOILED SENTIMENTALITY among the bunch.
