In the interest of a year of interesting book but blank systems, please comment with one title of a book released in 2009 that you really enjoyed for whatever reason. This will in some way form not a ‘best of’ list, but a reference tablet for enjoyable new text.

      DC’s ‘Ugly Man’ and, even though I don’t think it comes out until next year, ‘Babyfucker’ (Urs Allemann) were both genius.
