The Globe and the Guardian weigh in on their best of the year. I'm rather impressed with the quality of the Globe's list. Carol Windley on the Canadian fiction list, Vincent Lam not; a string of strong nonfiction entries and both Clare Messud's Emperor's Children and Chimananda Adichie's Half of a Yellow Sun on for foreign fiction.
Someday, someone's going to have to explain the appeal of Douglas Coupland's fiction to anyone over thirty, but that's a minor quibble.
