My desire to finish Ronson’s gripping book without waking my cat and girlfriend outweighed the putrid stench of my terrible fetid lair. I felt like a psychopath! But I’m not one — I have a sense of humor and experience empathy.
The Great Frustration is a debut, but it’s also something most writers, even the most acclaimed ones, have never accomplished: it is a perfect short story collection. It’s also the best book I read in 2011.
There were two huge literary new releases in October, but only one could take our top spot.
An e-book original takes the top spot and another debuts. One of the big literary books of the fall also lands on our list.
It's The Pale King's last month at the top. Plus a new Hall of Famer and a pair of intriguing newcomers.

Two debuts (including an e-book original) and a YA bestseller returns.
