Top Tens of 2008: Fiction

- Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates
- Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell
- The Stories of Paul Bowles
- Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith
- Cocaine Nights by JG Ballard
- Slaughterhouse 5 by Kurt Vonnegut
- We Are Now Beginning Our Descent by James Meek
- The Dedalus Book of Spanish Fantasy
- Out Stealing Horses by Per Petterson
- Serious Things by Gregory Normington

No particular order, but the three in bold were outstanding.

[I don't often read more than 12-15 novels each year, so a 'Top 10' list is a little artificial, but then I'm reasonably strict about pre-selection.]

2006 and 2007 lists here.
