Eight years ago I realized that since I see roughly ten films a year, I can easily create a “10 Best Films of the Year” list by simply placing those films in order. Last year I made a similar list of books. The following books were all published in 2015 (actually, most of them are little chapbooks) and I read them all. They are very good. The order is chronological.
“Eat Pamphlet” by Morgan Vo
“The Sellout” by Paul Beatty
“The Book of Beginnings” by François Jullien, translated by Jody Gladding
“hello” by anonymous
“Haikus” by Lorenzo Bueno & Conor Messinger
“Julyiary” by Charity Coleman
