(Some random, late-night thoughts for nominations for this list. I’d love to hear your own.)
Room (Emma Donoghue)
The Leopard (Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa)
What I Loved (Siri Husvedt)
Freedom (Jonathan Franzen)
… and the #1 for this: The Finkler Question (Howard Jacobson) – possibly the worst book I have ever read, and certainly the worst book that is supposed to be good that I have ever read.
