Best Books of the Year!

Very good to see that our Celine Dion 33 1/3 book was listed as one of the books of 2008 in the Globe and Mail over the weekend. Here’s what they said about it:

Carl Wilson’s distaste for the music of Celine Dion becomes the basis for a wide-ranging book predicated on the possibility that what repels us may say more about us than what attracts us. Finally, he is able to experience schmaltz without shame. Readers of his insightful, engaging and unexpectedly moving book will probably feel the same.

You can read the entire article (one of the best lists I’ve seen so far this holiday season) here.

In related news, Carl’s book was also listed as a Christmas pick by the Daily Telegraph in the UK, alongside Graeme Thomson’s I Shot a Man in Reno.
