My end-of-year best records list is probably the same as everyone else's. However, here are 11 (because I couldn't eliminate any of them to an even 10) of my favorite books that I read or listened to beautifully narrated recordings of in 2015, most of which were not written in 2015, in no particular order:
Howard Zinn, "A People's History of the United States"
Jeffrey Eugenides, "Middlesex"
Ian Macdonald, "Revolution In The Head: The Beatles Records and the Sixties"
Raymond Chandler, "The Big Sleep"
Haruki Murakami, "The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle"
Haruki Murakami, "1Q84"
Gabriel Garcia Marquez, "Love in the Time of Cholera"
Ian Svenonius, "Supernatural Strategies for making a Rock 'n' Roll Group"
Miguel de Cervantes, "Don Quixote"
Jonathan Franzen, "Purity"
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, "The Complete Sherlock Holmes"
