Todos los años, el
 New York Times Book Review
publica una lista de 100 libros notables del año. Notables vendría a ser: a tener en cuenta, para leer, eso. Son inteligentes y saben que poner “los mejores” (
the best 
) no significa absolutamente nada. Reunimos esa lista, la del 2013, y linkeamos, en todos los casos que pudimos, la versión epub/mobi. Gratis. No están todos, no podrían estarlo. Eso no quiere decir que no estén ahí afuera, sino solamente que nosotros no supimos encontrarlos. Los links rotos y en rojo son los de los libros que no supimos conseguir.Por ahora, es sólo lo de ficción. A continuación:
The year’s notable fiction and poetry, selected by the editors of The New York Ti mes Book Review.
FICTION & POETRY THE ACCURSED.
 By Joyce Carol Oates. (Ecco/HarperCollins, $27.99.)
Oates’s extravagantly horrifying, funny and prolix postmodern Gothic novel purports to be the definitive account of a curse that infected bucolic Princeton, N.J., in 1905 and 1906.
 By James Salter. (Knopf, $26.95.)
Salter’s first novel in more than 30 years, which follows the loves and losses of a  World War II veteran, is an ambitious departure from his previous  work and, at a stroke, demolishes any talk of twilight.
 AMERICANAH.
 By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. (Knopf, $26.95.)
This witheringly trenchant novel scrutinizes blackness in  America, Nigeria and Britain.
BLEEDING EDGE.
 By Thomas Pynchon. (Penguin Press, $28.95.)
 Airliners crash not only into the twin towers but into a shaggy-dog tale involving a fraud investigator and a white-collar outlaw in this vital, audacious novel.
CHILDREN ARE DIAMONDS: An African Apocalypse.
 By  Edward Hoagland. (Arcade, $23.95.)
The adventure-seeking protagonist of Hoagland’s novel is swept up in the chaos of southern Sudan.
 
THE CIRCLE.
 By Dave Eggers. (Knopf/McSweeney’s, $27.95.)
In a disturbing not-too- distant future, human existence flows through the portal of a company that gives Eggers’s novel its title.
CLAIRE OF THE SEA LIGHT.
 By Edwidge Danticat. (Knopf, $25.95.)
Danticat’s novel is less about a Haitian girl who disappears on her birthday than about the heart of a magical seaside village.
THE COLOR MASTER: Stories.
 By Aimee Bender. (Doubleday, $25.95.)
Physical o bjects help Bender’s characters grasp an overwhelming world.
 A CONSTELLATION OF VITAL PHENOMENA .
 By Anthony  Marra. (Hogarth, $26.)
Odds against survival are high for the characters of Marra’s extraordinary first novel, set in war-torn Chechnya.
THE DINNER .
 By Herman Koch. Translated by Sam Garrett. (Hogarth, $24. )

DIRTY LOVE.
 By Andre Dubus III. (Norton, $25.95.)
Four linked stories expose their characters’ bottomless needs and stubborn  weaknesses.
DISSIDENT GARDENS.
 By Jonathan Lethem. (Doubleday, $27.95.)
Spanning 80 years and three generations, Lethem’s novel realistically portrays an enchanted — or disenchanted — garden of  American leftists in Queens.
DOCTOR SLEEP.
 By Stephen King. (Scribner, $30.)
Now grown up, Danny, the boy with psycho-intuitive powers in “The Shining,” helps another threatened magic child in a novel that shares the  virtues of King’s best work.
 By Kathryn Davis. (G raywolf, $24.)
 A schoolteacher takes an unusual lover in this astonishing, double-hinged novel set in a fantastical suburbia.
 
THE END OF THE POINT.
 By Elizabeth Graver. (Harper, $25.99.)
 A summer house on the Massachusetts coast both shelters and isolates the wealthy family in Graver’s eloquent multigenerational novel.
THE FLAMETHROWERS.
 By Rachel Kushner. (Scribner, $26.99.)
In Kushner’s frequently dazzling second novel, an impressionable artist navigates the volatile worlds of New York and Rome in the 1970s.
THE GOLDFINCH.
 By Donna Tartt. (Little, Brown, $30.)
The “Goldfinch” of the title of Tartt’s smartly written Dickensian novel is a painting smuggled through the early years of a boy’s life — his prize, his guilt and his burden.
THE GOOD LORD BIRD.
 By James McBride. (Riverhead, $27.95.)
McBride’s romp of a novel, the 2013 National Book Award  winner, is narrated by a freed slave boy who passes as a girl. It’s a risky portrait of the radical abolitionist John Brown in which irreverence becomes a new form of
!
homage.
 A GUIDE TO BEING BORN: Stories. (LINK A UNA PAQUETE DE VARIOS QUE INCLUYE ÉSTE)
 By Ramona  Ausubel. (Riverhead, $26.95.)

In Segal’s darkly comic novel, dementia becomes contagious at a Manhattan hospital.
I WANT TO SHOW YOU MORE: Stories.
 By Jamie Quatro. (Grove, $24.)

!
recombinations.
THE IMPOSSIBLE LIVES OF GRETA WELLS.
 By Andrew  Sean Greer. (Ecco/ HarperCollins, $26.99.)
 A distraught woman inhabits different selves across the 20th century in Greer’s elegiac novel.
