Alice Munro’s "Dear Life" Tops Kirkus' Top 25

Alice Munro's novel DEAR LIFE tops Kirkus Reviews' 25 Best Fiction of 2012 list

Alice Munro’s novel DEAR LIFE tops Kirkus Reviews’ Best 2012 Fiction list

Howard Jacobson’s Zoo Time, Chris Ware’s Building Stories, Sherman Alexie’s Blasphemy, and Richard Beard’s Lazarus is Dead round out the top five on Kirkus Reviews’ Best of Fiction 2012 list. It’s a mostly male, mostly white list, but I’d like to believe Kirkus came by this list sans the subliminal class, race, and gender biases that often dictate what defines/who writes superior literature.  I’m definitely going to add  Lazarus is Dead and Lauren Groff’s Arcadia to my wish list.  Read the full list here.
