Best Books Read in 1997

Happy Holidays to all you book lovers out there!

My Fifth Annual Recommended Reading List is hereby submitted for your enjoyment. As always, I hope it gives y’all some new ideas.

Whenever I travel somewhere I like to read books set in the places I’m visiting. This past year I spent a long weekend in New York (read The Alienist and found it disappointing) and New Orleans (two good books made it on this list.) I was surprised at how difficult it was to find books set in the Big Easy. (Quickie murder mysteries don’t cut it for me.) Since I’m already planning a return visit, I welcome suggestions anyone might have for a good N’Awlins story.

So, without further ado, here’s the list for 1997, in no particular order.
