Long for This World Selected for Magill’s Annual
28 August 2010
Critically evaluates 200 major examples of serious literature, both fiction and nonfiction, published during the previous calendar year… Provides coverage for works that are likely to be of particular interest to the general reader, that reflect the publishing trends of a given year, and that will stand up to the test of time… By filtering the thousands of books published every year down to 200 notable titles, the editors have provided the busy librarian with an excellent reader’s advisory tool and patrons with fodder for book discussion groups and a guide for choosing worthwhile reading material. The essay-reviews in the Annual provide a more academic, “authoritative” review of a work than is typically found in newspapers and other ephemeral sources.
Here is a list of authors covered in last year’s annual. Nice company to be keeping indeed.
