A little late, but better than never.
Women writers all over the web are responding to our lack of presence on mainstreams awards lists and "best of" lists with lists of our own--(note to world: I got there first re the PW list).
So in that positive spirit, here goes--awesome books I read that were written by women in 2009, both high and lowbrow. What's on yours?
