I started 2012 with a vow to diversify my reading. The focus was not only to increase nonfiction, but also to read new authors. In that regard, 2012 was definitely a year well spent. The books that stand out are Manu Joseph’s “The Illicit Happiness of Other People” Shehan Karunatilaka’s “Chinaman” and Junot Diaz’s “The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao”. All of these books absorbed me and more importantly reaffirmed my belief in the power of fiction.
However the book that really got me going was something that I read in early January. One of my first non-fictions of the year, ‘The Trial of Bhagat Singh: Politics of Justice’ by A.G. Noorani completely blew me away.
