Best books of 2012: The New Yorker

Some of The New Yorker's contributors volunteered their favorite books from 2012.

Malcolm Gladwell's picks:
I loved Mischa Hiller’s “Shake Off.” I picked it up entirely by accident. I’d never heard of Hiller before, and the book absolutely blew me away. The only thriller this year that even came close was Chris Pavone’s “The Expats,” but Hiller’s novel has the benefit of mining every trope of the thriller genre while being absolutely original at the same time. I will read anything by Hiller from now on.
