by Dave Eggers
Our number one stands pat, but a formerly self-published juggernaut shoots higher on our list, and our one debut has now had three different titles in our Top Ten over the years.
As absurd as it may sound, I'd like to propose that Dave Eggers is the best candidate for editorship of The Paris Review. And, somewhat counterintuitively, that hiring him for the job might be as good for Eggers as for the magazine.
Four books debut on the list: Powell, McCann, Pevear and Volokhonsky, and Bouillier. David Mitchell vaults into the top spot.
One of the weird strengths of this book is that you can put it down and pick it up a month later and not miss a beat.
Dave Eggers opens and closes the list. Franzen debuts. And Atwood returns.
Four books move on to the Hall of Fame and six books debut on the list.
Pynchon and Bolaño hit the list. Plus, two new Hall of Fame inductees.
