NYT 100 Notable Books of 2009

Here's the list of the New York Times 100 Notable Books of the Year.


I'm happy to see Brad Leithauser's new book, The Art Student's War, but I didn't know it was out yet. The review will appear on Nov. 27.

There are a bunch of short story collections, including those by Wells Tower, Jean Thompson, Daniyal Mueenuddin, Aleksandr Hemon, John Updike, Kazuo Ishiguro, Antonya Nelson, Paul Yoon, Alice Munro, and Mary Gaitskill. That's a lot of stories!! (And, by the way, it's so great to see Paul Yoon on this list; congratulations, Paul!)

In addition to this list, and Janet Maslin's top ten (posted yesterday), we now have top ten lists from Michiko Kakutani and Dwight Garner.
