‘Quantum of Solace’; Best Book

The L.A. Times just posted their best books of ’08, using the friendlier moniker, “Favorite Books.” Included in the list of Favorite Paperbacks is Quantum of Solace. It has august company; the other three titles are the new translation of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Robert Bolaño’s 2666 and the collected poems of Zbigniew Herbert. (Links to the L.A. Times and other bests list appear at the right).

So, please, don’t think of this as a tie-in, but “a new original paperback [that]…collects all the James Bond short stories, rounding out Penguin’s complete set of Ian Fleming,” and illustrates “…what a fine writer Bond’s creator could be.” Note that it is also available in audio.
