The Oxford American Loves Books

The Oxford American ("The Southern Magazine of Good Writing") is one of my favorite magazines. Its burgeoning online component is fast coming to match its print content. For example, check out "Books We Love" in which "editors gush about some recent books that knocked our respective socks off."

I can vouch for Colum McCann's Let The Great World Spin. I nominated it for the fiction category for this year's National Book Critics Circle Awards. Despite being set in 1974 it is in many ways our greatest 9/11 novel.
