Publisher's Weekly Best Books of 2011

Via Rose Fox at Genreville

Publisher's Weekly has named its Best Books of 2011.  Below is a selection, but head on over to PW to see all the lists.  Looks like an interesting list of stuff I should like to read.

Zoo City, by Lauren Buekes
Triptych, by J. M. Frey
Unpossible, by Daryl Gregory
Two Worlds and In Between: The Best of Caitlín R. Kiernan, Vol. 1, by Caitlín R. Kiernan
Erekos by A.M. Tuomala

Top Ten Overall
The Marriage Plot, by Jeffrey Eugenides
The Devil All the Time, by Donald Ray Pollock
State of Wonder, by Ann Patchett
After the Apocalypse, by Maureen F. McHugh
Bossypants, by Tina Fey
Catherine the Great, by Robert K. Massie
There but for the, by Ali Smith
Hemingway's Boat, by Paul Hendrickson
One Day I Will Write About This Place, by Binyavanga Wainaina
Arguably: Essays, by Christopher Hitchens

I haven't read any of these.  I'm a huge fan of Ann Patchett's work and I've been following Eugenides since The Virgin Suicides.  I have no clue how I didn't know he had a new novel out.  Also, Daryl Gregory tends to be fantastic.  I haven't read his new novel OR this new collection.  Sigh.  So much to read.
