My favourite books of the year were all non-fiction, and two of them have
not yet been published in the UK, although they’re on their way, I think:
David Carr’s ‘
Night Of The Gun’ (if you only have the time or energy for one
addiction memoir, then this should be it) and Elizabeth McCracken’s
heartbreaking but thoughtful ‘
An Exact Replica Of A Figment Of My
’. But Mark Harris’s ‘Scenes From A Revolution’, the best book
about movies I’ve read, is available somewhere near you now. The best novel
I read this year was Penelope Mortimer’s bleak and exquisite ‘
The Pumpkin
’, which was published in 1962.
