By Edward Nawotka

The end of the year “best book” lists are everywhere you turn. I’ve kvetched in the past about how commonplace it is to see the same dozen or two books on everyone’s top ten list. But that’s to be expected. After all, a good book is a good book. But what of the other 99%? So, in the spirit of the season of generosity, tell us, what’s your favorite book of 2011 that nobody’s talking about?

Mine? Alina Simone‚Äôs You Must Go and Win published by Faber & Faber. It’s the most hilarious, acerbic, and literary book about life as an aspiring punk rock musician you’re likely to read in this or any year.
