Tons of great reading this year, as we've seen in other posts throughout 2017 and in the numerous and varied best of/favorite lists coming out this time of year from a wide range of folks. I've broken my lists down into Fiction, Crime Fiction and Non-Fiction. I limited each list to six picks in no particular order. Some of these could arguably overlap, but fell where they fell for reasons it would take too long and be too uninteresting to explain. I was going to do a favorite cover list, but strangely most were already represented on this list (See: Where The Sun Shines Out, A Negro And An Ofay, Hunger, Nomadland, Ash Falls, Breaking Bad 101).

About Malcolm Avenue Review

I was lucky enough to be born and raised in a nifty, oak-shaded ranch house on Malcolm Avenue, a wide-laned residential street with little through traffic, located amid the foothills of Northern California. It was on that street and in that house I learned most of my adolescent life lessons, and many grown-up ones to boot. Malcolm Avenue was "home" for more than thirty years.

It was on Malcolm Avenue, through and with my family and the other families that made up our neighborhood of characters, that I first learned about and gained an appreciation for the things I continue to love the most to this day: music, animals, photography, sports, television/movies and, of course, books.

I owe a debt of gratitude to that life on Malcolm Avenue. It gave me a sense of community and friendship, support and adventure. For better and worse, life on that street likely had the biggest impact on the person I've become. So this blog, and the things I write here, are all, at their base level, a little bit of a love letter to Malcolm Avenue.
