Bookforum is a contemporary magazine of criticism and analysis of literature and culture. In the latest issue (December/January 2010/11, eleven authors of contemporary fiction, non-fiction, and poetry give us a list of the books (mostly new) which impressed them the most during the past year. You need look no further if your interested in trenchant, meaningful recommendations for your own reading list. Ask your librarian how to get these items, or consult your library's on-line catalog.
