I'm trying not to editorialize about the lists themselves but I'm fairly certain this is the first one that contains a book that hasn't actually been published yet. People are all crazed for Jeffrey Eugenides' new novel and it shows here. Square Books is the kind of store that authors, booksellers and readers all collectively swoon over. They have a good thing going.
