All day today, I’ve been posting my favorites (and least favorites) of 2018. If you’ve missed the previous entries …. well, that’s kind of on you.
Anyway, we have now reached the part of our program where I list my top twelve non-fiction books. There was actually quite a lot of good non-fiction published this year. The list below is a nice mix of memoirs, politics, and true crime. Read them all and then be sure to come back here and thank me.
Here’s the list!
- The Infernal Library: On Dictators, the Books They Wrote, and Other Catastrophes of Literacy by Daniel Kalder
- Room to Dream by David Lynch and Kristine McKenna
- Bachelor Nation: Inside the World of America’s Favorite Guilty Pleasure by Amy Kaufman
- You’re on an Airplane: A Self-Mythologizing Memoir by Parker Posey
- I Am, I Am, I Am: Seventeen Brushes with Death by Maggie O’Farrell
- The Art of Horror Movies: An Illustraed History by Stephen Jones
- True Indie: Life and Death in Filmmaking by Don Coscarelli
- Time Pieces: A Dublin Memoir by John Banville
- Blowing the Bloody Doors Off by Michael Caine
- The Contest: The 1968 Election and the War for America’s Soul by Michael Schumacher
- I’ll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman’s Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer by Michelle McNamara
- The Real Lolita: The Kidnapping of Sally Horner and the Novel That Scandalized the World by Sarah Weinman
I’ve got three more topics left to cover: music, television, and my favorite movies of the year. For now, I need to take a small break and stretch my legs so expect to see the rest of my picks for the best of 2018 later tonight or tomorrow.
(Probably tomorrow, to be absolutely honest.)
