Richard Morgan -- Best Literature Picks of 2007

Over on Green Man Review, Richard Morgan posts his Best Literature Picks of 2007, where he asks, "What was 2007 good for, literarily speaking?" and looks at literature, poems, graphic novels, even one videogame, that make an "elevated grade." Of Ian McDonald's Brasyl,he says, "lush, sweeping in scope, studded with technological gems and as brightly sparkling as the cityscapes two thirds of the book take place in, this is a worthy follow up to Macdonald’s award winning River of Gods;...Brasyl comes on at you with the rapid percussive beat of carnaval, and like the itch of samba in your hips, will not be denied."
