THE HELP by Kathryn Stockett
THE ELEGANCE OF THE HEDGEHOG by Muriel Barbery
REAL LIFE AND LIARS by Kristina Riggle
Okay, so THE HELP and HEDGEHOG were actually published at the end of 2008. But I haven't had the chance to read some of newly-published books like WOLF HALL and THE CHILDREN'S BOOK, and Alice Munro's new collection isn't even out yet, so I decided to make my sample Fall '08 - Fall '09. Cheating? Perhaps. But there you have it.
ETA: Check out this thought-provoking post on women and writing by Marie Mutsuki Mockett.
How about you? Any favorites from the ladyfolk (any genre will do)?
