My best books of 2017

November 26th, 2017

My best books of 2017… Deeply insightful works from Yale University Press on geopolitics today, a history of consumerism in the West, a wave making read on the Anthropocene as a new era, a powerful explanation of the nature/nurture question for human identity by a very funny Californian, and a charming meander through the English love of dogs.

I’ve only included books published in 2017 in this list, but elsewhere this year was very rich for me in discovering poets such as Carl Dennis and May Sarton, not to mention the journals of Joseph Banks from the late eighteenth century.
