Best Book From an Author I’ve Read Before

Today’s category is the opposite of yesterday’s. These are books from authors I’ve read and (obviously) enjoyed previously and so searched out further writing from them.

Honourable Mention:

Lila– Marilynne Robinson (Harper Collins, 2014)

Rules of Civility – Amor Towles (Penguin Books, 2011)

Indian Horse – Richard Wagamese (Douglas & McIntyre, 2012)

Washington Black – Esi Edugyan (Patrick Crean Editions, 2018)

And The Winner:

Warlight – Michael Ondaatje (McClelland & Stewart, 2018)

This is perhaps slightly unfair because Michael Ondaatje is my favourite (still alive) author. And while Washington Black ran a good second, I adore Ondaatje’s style and was not disappointed by his latest book.

  1. I’m ashamed to say I’ve never read any Michael Ondaatje – one day! I did enjoy Rules of Civility very much, though, and am looking forward to getting to Lila at some point, after loving Gilead. These are proving to be fatal to my poor wishlist…

    1. Oh, you should really read Ondaatje! My favourite is In the Skin of a Lion but they’re all very good. And Lila was great too. I read/re-read the whole trilogy this year and getting into Lila’s head/history was fascinating. She’s a very well-written character.
