What have our big picks been for the best season in books? On our anniversary year, we look back at great reads from the past decade and a half.
Divisadero by Michael Ondaatje

Divisadero

288 pages; Knopf

2007


You need him the way you need ice water: a tight-lipped loner in a black T-shirt who wakes up your senses, then slips from your grasp. Divisadero is Michael Ondaatje's (The English Patient) latest literary seduction, a tale of two sisters who love—and, inevitably, lose—the sexy male enigma known as Coop. An intricate double narrative, mapping landscapes of memory and desire.
