Our Top 10 Favorite Books of 2015

If there is a greater pleasure than reading, it is recommending to others works by writers one loves. During the holiday season, we're extra festive, figuring out which of the hundreds of books we've read since January we liked best. 

The Only Ones

344 pages; Two Dollar Radio
Dibbell's major accomplishment (besides publishing her first novel just shy of 70) is her narrator, Inez, blessed and cursed with immunity in a society ravaged by plagues. Inez's voice—a fragmented vernacular that is wise, tough and humane—elevates this dystopian novel in which, after a botched experiment leaves her an unwitting mother, every choice is a desperate one.
