You'll notice that some of our "best books of November" went on sale in late October. Sometimes there are so many great releases in a given month that we have to bump a few favorites to the following month. That's what happened with the books you see here, starting with Joe Hagan's colorful portrait of the founder of Rolling Stone magazine. Senior editor Jon Foro says that Jann Wenner "wielded an outsized influence over popular culture for decades, and his biography would have to match." Sticky Fingers does. "One way to know that the book is good: Although Wenner reportedly regrets the result (he has denounced it as “tawdry”), he doesn’t dispute it. Hagan did him a favor. This is certainly not hagiography, but ultimately, Wenner will loom larger for it."
