Top 10 Nonfiction Books of 2012
PEOPLE WHO EAT DARKNESS: The True Story of a Young Woman Who Vanished from the Streets of Tokyo — and the Evil That Swallowed Her Up by Richard Lloyd Parry
"Richard Lloyd Parry, the Tokyo bureau chief for the Times of London, tells the story as a true-crime thriller, one that exposes another layer of the strangeness of Japanese society with every twist: its attitude toward foreigners, the culture of its police, its media, its racial and sexual politics. It’s the fate of all true-crime books to be compared to IN COLD BLOOD, but this one stands up to the comparison better than most."
Top 10 Fiction Books of 2012
BRING UP THE BODIES by Hilary Mantel
"Mantel infuses Anne Boleyn’s progression from palace to executioner’s block with taut suspense; her exhilarating prose, unrivaled in contemporary fiction, renders Cromwell one of literature’s most compelling characters."
AT LAST by Edward St. Aubyn
"Abused by his father and neglected by his mother, Patrick grows up ravaged both by financial riches and emotional poverty, and as an adult he struggles with drugs, alcohol and his own fecklessness. His sense of humor, however, is unimpaired, and he never stops trying to make peace with his legacy and find his way to some semblance of happiness and mental health."
