bergg: The Tolstoy-esque family novel got its 21st-century upgrade early, and has withstood all comers since. The Lamberts’ disintegration under the pressures of work, illness, and love unfolds with a cynical humor that strips the family’s pretensions away until only their most craven selves survive as they struggle to break free. As these unsympathetic characters go through the wringer, Jonathan Franzen outlines the symptoms of modern malaise, whose only cure is being able to see through the layers of protective self-delusion. The modern dysfunctional family wriggles under Franzen’s microscope, but its features are all too familiar. -A.V. Club

bergg: Kath, a seemingly ordinary British girl, goes to a special boarding school where she and her friends are groomed for a special fate while enjoying and suffering the loves and betrayals that come to young people everywhere. This odd, heartbreaking novel unfurls age-old conundrums about what it means to be a person; about the grievous sin of treating anyone, however unexceptional, as the means to an end; and about the unfathomable future that awaits each and every one of us. -Laura Miller, Salon.com

One afternoon I was in the zoo in New Delhi, and saw a white tiger in its cage, and I thought, ‘A man who is prepared to do anything for his freedom — sacrifice his family, kill another man — would be as rare as that animal” -http://aggsliterature.wordpress.com

bergg: At the suggestion of an editor, journalist Barbara Ehrenreich attempted to live for two years on the wages of the average unskilled American worker. She worked as a waitress, maid and Wal-Mart clerk, shacking up in dives and dining on fast food, in an effort to find out how America’s working poor make it. Her answer: A lot of them don’t. If her efforts to suggest remedies are often rebuffed by her own subjects, her visceral dispatches from the ragged fringe of the American dream remain indispensable. -salon.com

bergg: Two nice, mid-20th-century Jewish boys go to work in the nascent comic book industry, where the dreams and nightmares of the real world manifest themselves in the extravagant guise of entertainment for children. This buoyant tragicomic adventure story remains one of the most persuasive and gorgeously written depictions (and vindications) of the way popular culture transfigures our lived experience to become the modern-day equivalent of myth and folklore. -Laura Miller, Salon.com

bergg: America is no place for a divinity. Our soil isn’t fertile that way — myths don’t thrive the way they did in the old world. Reading American Gods, you can see why it takes a foreigner — Gaiman’s a Brit — to see what is invisible to the natives: the old deities scratching out a seedy living all around us — Norse, Slavic, Irish, Egyptian, voodoo, Egyptian — brought over by generations of immigrants and then left to die. Together they re-enact the old myths here on our barren soil, and Gaiman shows us that, even here, they still have their old power. -entertainment.time.com

bergg: Much of America made it out of the 20th century badly equipped to deal with the 21st. Richard Russo’s Empire Falls is set in just such a place, a rust-belt Maine town that’s kept going even though the industry that led to its creation can no longer sustain it. Russo brought his by-then-familiar command of memorable characters and comic moments to a novel more ambitious than any he’d attempted before. The book captures a time and place unnerved by a future that offers no reassuring promises of a better tomorrow beyond the comfort its inhabitants can give each other. -avclub.com

bergg: Divided into five sections and just shy of 1,000 pages — “2666” is the funniest and most tender apocalyptic book you’ll ever read. The tortuous paths in the labyrinthine plot all lead to a brutal center — a collection of unsolved murders based on real serial killings in Mexico. Readers should cherish every page; Bolaño, a Chilean ex-pat, died in 2003 at age 50. -boston.com

bergg: tells the tale of fifty-nine people that were held hostage in an unnamed country in South America. The hostages, which include international ambassadors, Japanese businessmen, an opera singer, and local government officials, had gathered together to celebrate Katsumi Hosokawa's birthday. Hosokawa was being courted by local politicians to build a plant in their country. Bel Canto isn't the usual blood-and-guts tale of a hostage situation; instead, the novel focuses on the various hostages and terrorists and the relationships that grow amongst them all. -Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, cmlibrary.org

bergg: ...a rich story about secrets, ghosts, winter, books and family. The Thirteenth Tale is a book lover's book, with much of the action taking place in libraries and book stores, and the line between fact and fiction constantly blurred. It is hard to believe this is Setterfield's debut novel (released in 2006), for she makes the words come to life with such skill that some passages even gave me chills. -Erin Miller

bergg: This graphic memoir is an investigation of Bechdel’s childhood, spent in the ornate Victorian house that her father obsessively restored and maintained. After she came out of the closet to her parents at 19, her mom delivered a return whammy: Bechdel’s father had a lifelong history of affairs with men, including teenage boys. Not long after, he died under ambiguous circumstances. Bechdel’s years of drawing a serial comic strip have honed her ability to convey oceans of feeling in a single image, and the feelings are never simple; “Fun Home” shimmers with regret, compassion, annoyance, frustration, pity and love. -Laura Miller

This is a novel that seems easy to categorise but doesn’t fit into any obvious genre. -telegraph.co.uk

bergg: In New York City, following 9/11, Hans, a banker from the Netherlands, finds himself marooned among the occupants of the Chelsea Hotel after his English wife and son return to London. Alone, untethered, and feeling lost in the country he'd come to regard as home, Hans stumbles upon the vibrant New York subculture of cricket, where, thanks to a friendship with Trinidadian, Chuck Ramkissoon, Hans begins to reconnect with his life and his adopted country. Ramkissoon, a Gatsby-like figure - part idealist and part operator - introduces Hans to an "other" New York populated by immigrants and strivers of every race and nationality. Hans is alternately seduced and instructed by Chuck's ability to a hold fast to a sense of possibility in which Hans has come to lose faith. (summary from ISBN 1602853142)

bergg: There are six stories in this collection. Four of them are very good, and the other two are at least good -- a success average that is highly unusual for a short-story collection. If, like your humble reviewer, you had to regularly review short-story collections, you would soon discover that they almost always suck -- tinseling suburban dullness with some distant derivative of the Joycean epiphany until you want to scream: Basta! That Saunders stories are on such a high level is close to miraculous. -The Austin Chronicle, Roger Gathman (May 19, 2000)

bergg: An analysis of the processes and mechanisms for which some trends achieve an incredible amount of popularity while others are never successful, and why this is so. As Gladwell states, “Ideas and products and messages and behaviors spread like viruses do.” Gladwell goes on to illustrate the similarities in such trends as spreadable viruses all the way to why a certain children’s television show has become so popular and how the smallest changes can become so influential.

bergg: 71-yr old Coleman Silk has lost everything, including his job as a distinguished professor, his wife (deceased), and his roots. The book examines the final tumultuous months of Silk's life and the tragic results of his romance with Faunia Farley, a troubled young woman. Told from the point of view of Nathan Zuckerman (a recurring Roth character who is a writer and a friend of Silk's), the reader learns of an incredible secret that Silk has kept for fifty years. This rich and complex narrative is full of memorable characters who come and go. Silk and Farley’s predicament is viewed in contrast with the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal which was then unfolding. -Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, cmlibrary.org

bergg: What would compel a man, who was himself a former slave, to become a slaveholder? Are the attributes needed to become a slaveholder a learned behavior or are they innate? These are only a few paramount questions readers would most likely want to ask of Henry Townsend. Townsend is the main character in Edward P Jones’s debut novel The Known World. Set in ante-bellum Virginia, Jones’s many, many characters breathe life into the taboo topic of black people who become slaveholders. Jones is a brilliant storyteller who just recently received the Pulitzer for The Known World. -Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, cmlibrary.org

bergg: The novel ties together a lifetime of obsessions—with music, art, fathers and sons, comics, and more—and grounds them in the 1970s Brooklyn of Lethem’s childhood. It’s a place of sadness, peril, and racial unease, but it’s also overflowing with the imaginative possibilities of childhood, at least until crises and looming adulthood start to shut them down. It’s a novel immersed in the past, but deeply distrustful of nostalgia and fully aware that the pain of youth has a habit of lingering, and even the presence of magic does little to secure happiness. -avclub.com

But the epicenter of the suicides, the eastern border city of Kars, is also home to the radiant and newly divorced Ipek, a friend of Ka's youth, whom he has never forgotten and whose spirited younger sister is a leader of the rebellious schoolgirls. As a fierce snowstorm descends on Kars, violence between the military and local Islamic radicals begins to explode, and Ka finds his sympathies drawn in unexpected and dramatic directions.
