With more than 100,000
books published each year, it s
hard to know what works best
for a holiday gift. A few
"experts," from a prize-winning
historian to some best-selling
children s authors, have sugges-
James McBride, whose novel
The Good Lord Bird was this year s
fiction winner of the National Book
Award: And the Earth Did Not
Swallow Him, by Tomas Rivera.
"It s a short group of vignettes,"
McBride says, "but I like the writ-
ing, imagery, voice and story."
Brian Selznick, whose The
Invention of Hugo Cabret was
adapted into a feature film by Mar-
tin Scorsese: Ballad, by Blexbolex.
"This book is unlike anything I ve
ever seen before," Selznick wrote
in a recent email. "It s a puzzle, a
fairy tale, an adventure, a love story,
made with words and pictures used
in a new, utterly beguiling way.
The silk-screened images, made
with unbelievable fluorescent ink,
will draw you in and will leave you
breathless till the end."
Rachel Kushner, author of the
acclaimed novel The Flamethrow-
ers: Manning Marable s Pulitzer
Prize-winning biography of Mal-
colm X. "I think it s absolutely
incredible," she says. "An impec-
cable work of history about a very
important American figure."
Alan Taylor, a Pulitzer Prize-
winning historian whose latest
book is The Internal Enemy, about
slavery in colonial and post-colo-
nial Virginia: A Misplaced Mas-
sacre: Struggling Over the Memory
of Sand Creek, by Ari Kellman,
the story of a bloody 1864 battle
in Colorado that left more than
150 Native Americans dead and
the debate surrounding a memorial
site dedicated in 2007. "A book
about how different people can
remember an event in very differ-
ent ways," Taylor says.
Ann Martin, author of The
Babysitters Club series: In the
Company of the Courtesan,by
Sarah Dunant. "A mesmerising
story set in 16th-century Venice,"
Mark Halperin, co-author of
Double Down, the best-seller
about the 2012 presidential elec-
tion: Monsters: The 1985 Chicago
Bears and the Wild Heart of Foot-
ball, by Rich Cohen. Halperin
praises the book s "nostalgia, great
storytelling, and larger-than-life
Goosebumps author RL Stine:
Fun Home, by Alison Bechdel.

turned into the best musical theatre
play I saw all year," Stine says.
