Best books of 2010: fiction

9. "Room," by Emma Donoghue

"Room," by Emma Donoghue (Little, Brown, 336 pp., $24.99). The beauty and warmth of this narrative belie the lurid-sounding premise of this novel, in which a cheerful 5-year-old tells of his life trapped in an 11-by-11-foot room with his mother. (, 10/28/10)
