The fourth best book of 2022 is Trust written by Hernan Diaz An unparalleled novel about money, power, intimacy, and perception Even through the roar and effervescence of the 1920s, everyone in New York has heard of Benjamin and Helen Rask. He is a legendary Wall Street tycoon; she is the daughter of eccentric aristocrats. Together, they have risen to the very top of a world of seemingly endless wealth–all as a decade of excess and speculation draws to an end. But at what cost have they acquired their immense fortune? This is the mystery at the center of Bonds, a successful 1937 novel that all of New York seems to have read. Yet there are other versions of this tale of privilege and deceit. Hernan Diaz’s TRUST elegantly puts these competing narratives into conversation with one another–and in tension with the perspective of one woman bent on disentangling fact from fiction. The result is a novel that spans over a century and becomes more exhilarating with each new revelation.
5. Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow
Zevin is an American author and screenwriter whose other works include the New York Times bestseller The Storied Life of AJ Fikry and award-winning young-adult fiction. The decidedly digital subject matter of her 10th novel, Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow – which is being made into a feature film by Paramount – is an unusual one. But playing and reading are natural companions, and Zevin gracefully weaves together the two in language that is pleasingly accessible to non-gamers.
These five best books of 2022 are sure to provide readers with an escape from reality and give them something thrilling, mysterious, and magical to look forward to. So mark your calendars and get ready for an incredible year of best books!
