Best Books of the Year 2009 #5 - "Library Journal"

The "Library Journal" has released its selection of Best Books for 2009. 

On the main list they have chosen Wanting by Richard Flanagan, describing it as follows:"Acclaimed Australian author Flanagan draws on the tragic history of Tasmania's aboriginal people, polar explorer Sir John Franklin's ill-fated final expedition, and Charles Dickens's unhappy marriage to meditate on the devastation wrought by people convinced that repressing their 'wants,' or desires, is the foundation of civilization. Elegant and astonishing."
