100 notable books of the year

Of the Times' 100 I recommend the following:
The Savage Detectives. By Roberto Bolaño. A craftily autobiographical novel about a band of literary guerrillas.

What is the What. The Autobiography of Valentino Achak Deng: A Novel. By Dave Eggers. The horrors, injustices and follies in this novel are based on the experiences of one of the Lost Boys of Sudan.
