Joseph O’Neill’s novel Netherland about Hans van den Broek, a Dutch banker living in New York who finds redemption in a cricketing community of migrants, was one of the best novels to appear last year. O’Neill, a former banker himself and a member of the Staten Island Cricket Club,was praised for his rich narrative voice. O’Neill listed the names of five books that he loves revisiting:
Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison
Collected Poems By Wallace Stevens
Herzog By Saul Bellow
Self-Consciousness By John Updike
(The descriptions of the books were not in the writer’s words and have hence been dropped)
