Ohhhh..a cool new (mostly non-fiction) book list is out!
From the online the Economist:
Books of the Year
The best books of 2011 were about China, Congo, Afghanistan, Charles Dickens, Vincent van Gogh, the "Flora Delanica", Jerusalem, Mumbaiís dance bars, quantum physics, sugar, orgasms, blue nights, two moons and other peopleís money.
I am drooling over some of the titles.
One in particular:
Cables from Kabul: The Inside Story of the Westís Afghanistan Campaign. By Sherard Cowper-Coles. Harper Press; 312 pages; £25. Buy from Amazon.co.uk
1. I've been looking for a history of Italy, esp. the Resorgimento.
Thanks for the list, even if the Science choices seem a bit uninspiring.
