The Best Non-Fiction of the Year

Why Does the World Exist?

by Jim Holt

In this thought-provoking (and also surprisingly amusing) book, Jim Holt traces the metaphysical mystery of how we came to be. Holt’s journey finds him speaking to everyone from an uptight university professor to a Buddhist monk and beyond, tracing our efforts to find the answer to the riddle of existence from the ancient world to modern times.

D.V.

by Diana Vreeland

After seeing Lisa Immordino Vreeland’s wonderful documentary, Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel, it’s hard not to get re-obsessed with the legendary editor. Her 1984 memoir, D.V. is worth picking up – full as it is of her trademark witty quips.
