"My favorite book published this year was Katherine Boo’s Behind the Beautiful Forevers, the story of several families in a Mumbai slum. It’s a thrilling page-turner that also captures the complex results of globalization and the spread of industrial capitalism."Green

"I also really loved John Barnes’ Losers In Space and D. T. Max’s Every Love Story Is a Ghost Story, two books that could hardly be more different but together capture the encouraging breadth of contemporary American literature."
