3. The Goodness of Bad by Ravi Raman

Out of the blue, during a discussion on child molestation, my wife remarked, “My mother advised us to never believe men.” I was left stunned as she painted all men with one brush. But coming from my life companion and a well-respected counselor, set me thinking. What she had said had a much deeper relevance than what met my eye. An IIT’ian at heart, after some dithering, I decided it was worth getting to the bottom of it, even if it meant a lifetime. Dive into this book as I relive my past and share the experiences and learnings in the book.

4. How Leaders Decide by Harjeet Khanduja

9. Insatiable by Shobhaa Dé

‘I promise not to be three things–profound, pedantic and pretentious,’ says Shobhaa De, as she begins her heart-warming book.

It’s a promise India’s most beloved writer delivers on in her irreverent memoir about the year leading up to her landmark seventy-fifth birthday. Quintessential exuberance and keen observations firmly in place, she tells us about travelling solo, feasting (and fasting) with family and friends, the triumphs and losses that accompany ageing, the vagaries and vulnerabilities of being a writer and, above all, how food connects people in the most unexpected places and delightful ways.

Books Of The Year 2022 [Editor’s Choice]

Published

on

Each fall, the editors of the Delhi Wire select the best fiction and nonfiction titles of the year. Our editors read, nominate, discuss, and debate the merits of each year’s books, working together to land on our list.

From authors, both established and new, our favorite books of the year meditate on everything from life online to life in the intersections of identity. Set everywhere from the all-too-real world or solely in the mind, the distant past, or the speculative future, these books offer escape, education, and spiritual enlargement—whatever you’re looking for.

With such an embarrassment of riches on offer, ranking these books is a downright impossible task, so we present our selections in no particular order. In this singularly strange and challenging year, books comforted us, allowed us to travel even when borders were closed, and ultimately, kept us sane. We made it to the end of this terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year, and we’re still reading. Congratulate yourself for that—and don’t waste any time stocking up your “to be read” pile.


Celebrating the year’s end, celebrating you, the authors & the extraordinary books that defined 2022.
