A Year in Reading Part 2: Nonfiction

2016 Notables

The Reading List for 2016 for nonfiction was also a bit shorter this year, but again there were many exceptional and moving memoirs, essays and exposes on our world, ranging from writing, cuisine, culture and the deep complexity of our shared human lives. Here are several of the favorites that I would recommend you add alongside the fiction of the year to enter these worlds of each vibrant and inviting writer.
