readers' best books... last call

Tomorrow 15 December is the deadline for getting your Best Books contributions in... let's have them. It's a trickle at the moment, far from a deluge. So please send them in.

Too many to count, but highlights would be The Plot Against America by Philip Roth, Old School by Tobias Wolff, A Squatter's Tale by Ike Oguine and Tropical Fish by Doreen Baingana

This has been a good year for books that blur the boundaries between fiction, memoir and travel. Call them books of inquiry if you will.

Outstanding for me were Suketu Mehta's love poem to Bombay, "Maximum City"; John Berger's spooky and compassionate conversations with the dead in "Here is Where We Meet"; Pankaj Mishra's book about the Buddha, "An End to Suffering"; and Siddhartha Deb's Conradian novel about India's troubled northeast, "An Outline of the Republic."

Teju Cole, UKNaija & others,

If you want to contribute to the Readers' Best Books, you will please have to email them properly to me on - as per the original instructions. Whatever is left on the blog will just be left as they are - as comments - and will not be used.
