Best Books of 2010 #1 - Financial Times

| No TrackBacks
The Financial Times has chosen, amongst their best fiction picks of 2010:

Peter Carey's latest novel, Parrot and Olivier in America. They said: "Carey's brilliant evocation of the life of Alexis de Tocqueville explores themes of democracy, art, taste and class - all in the rich language of one of the world's finest writers."


The Slap by Christos Tsialkos: "A man slaps his cousin's son at a family barbecue - and triggers this soap opera of a novel. Misogynistic, voyeuristic and impressively engrossing."
