More favourite books of 2008

The L.A. Times has put together a special “Favorite Books of 2008” issue, and there are a few honourable mentions for CanLit.

In fiction and poetry, Miriam Toews’s The Flying Troutmans has a spot alongside other books that have been touted in multiple year-end roundups, like 2666 by Robert Bolaño and A Mercy by Toni Morrison.

For kids, Jeremy Tankard’s Me Hungry is singled out in the children’s picture book category, and Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother is mentioned in the YA category — a list dominated by books featuring “utopias and apocalyptic scenarios.”
