Really complicated books

Book awards are 10 a penny these days. The finalists for something called the Warwick Prize was announced yesterday. The winner gets £50,000. The prize features a different theme every year and the judges chose “complexity” for 2009.


Does anyone walk into a bookshop and say could you recommend a really good complex book? Does any search for complex books on the Internet? “Find me a book with a narrative so complicated that it will do my head in, please.”

In case you are a fan of really complicated books, the thrilling shortlist is Reinventing the Sacred by Stuart A. Kauffman, The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism by Naomi Klein, The Rest is Noise by Alex Ross, Montano’s Malady by Enrique Vila-Matas, Mad Bad and Sad by Lisa Appignanesi, The Art of Political Murder: Who Killed Bishop Gerardi? by Francisco Goldman.
