By strange coincidence two of the most intriguing art books I read this year had the word "Breakfast" in their titles. Greig's fascinating, intimate biography of Lucian Freud was a revelation. Hook's view of the art world is that of the professional auctioneer. In an A-Z format, it is an entire art education contained in under pages. Lab work has rarely been made to seem more interesting or heroic. My favourite novel for children published this year was the marvellously funny and inventive Heap House Hot Key , written and illustrated by Edward Carey.
Helping to judge this year's Samuel Johnson prize meant getting stuck into some serious non-fiction. Dalrymple's masterful retelling of the first Afghan war had an eerie modern-day relevance, while Hughes-Hallett's portrayal of the fascist poet Gabriele D'Annunzio was a sombre reminder of the perils of political extremism.
On a completely contrary note, Goulson's case for the importance of bumblebees will live long in my memory for its sheer passion and scientific detail. Janet Malcolm's Forty-One False Starts Granta provides a masterclass on the art of the essay from one of its most formidable living practitioners — often, as with the title essay, by sharing object lessons in failure.
These occasional pieces offer glimpses into the creative process, the writer's constant search for structure, order and consonance. Even when individual essays did not live up to Malcolm's rigorous standards, the collection as a whole shows how connections emerge from the workings of one memorably searching, restless, ruthless mind. George Saunders's collection of stories, Tenth of December Bloomsbury , is spectacularly good. The stories are clever and moving, and the title story is the best piece of fiction I've read this year.
The Searchers , by Glenn Frankel, is about the stories behind the story that became the classic John Ford film. It's a history of America, an exploration of racial intolerance, an account of how, and why, real events can become legends. It's also hugely entertaining — as well as huge. The book filled my head. Laid into the customary Salterish verbal exquisiteness and vivid intelligence is such remarkable audacity and dark-hued verve about us poor humans.
It's a great novel.

Do you really need to know about the appalling security issues that have dogged nuclear weapons in the 70 years since their invention? Yes, you do. Schlosser's book reads like a thriller, but it's masterfully even-handed, well researched, and well organised. Either he's a natural genius at integrating massive amounts of complex information, or he worked like a dog to write this book. You wouldn't think the prospect of nuclear apocalypse would make for a reading treat, but in Schlosser's hands it does.
A double biography is an intricate pattern to achieve, but Waldegrave brings it off triumphantly: she also brings compassion as well as scholarship to her aid, so that at times the story is almost unbearably moving.

Olivier by Philip Ziegler MacLehose Press , published appropriately enough as the National Theatre celebrates its 50th anniversary, is another narrative that sweeps you along. While in no sense a hagiography — there is plenty of discreet criticism when necessary — it enriched my sense of this amazing multi-faceted, multi-talented man.

Some of the events of have been told and retold so many times that the whole conflict has, for many people, acquired an obscuring antique patina. This book strips it all away.
