The Guardian has published a list of Books of the Year, with Seamus Heaney’s collection Human Chain and Edmund de Waal‘s The Hare with Amber Eyes getting a mention on more than one occasion.
Elsewhere, Jeanette Winterson opts for Jo Shapcott‘s collection Of Mutability while Blake Morrison‘s choice is, amongst others, Howard Jacobson‘s Booker Prize-winning The Finkler Question.
You can read the full list here.
The Independent also has an online list (which notes a book I’m right in the middle of: The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver), as does The Times.
