2012: The Year in Books – A Literary Review of 2012


What did 2012 in the book world look like? It was a year dominated by Fifty Shades of Grey. We lost Maurice Sendak, Ray Bradbury and Maeve Binchy. Hilary Mantel won the Booker Prize (for the second time) and nobody won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction.

J.K. Rowling returned, casually. Salman Rushdie, Zadie Smith, Junot Diaz, Ian McEwan and Justin Cronin also released books during 2012. Another busy year. Read all about it, fron controversry to eagerly-anticipated sequels, bestsellers and more.
