The Washington Post’s Book World team picks the top books in fiction, nonfiction, graphic novels and audio books of 2013.
At Book World, we poll our regular reviewers about the books they enjoyed during the year, and then the editors weigh and consider, count and recount.We want our own enthusiasms confirmed. And challenged. Slavish consensus would be boring. Give us a sharp debate about our favorite work of history, our most cherished novel — and then some good suggestions about what to read next.
