definitive nonfiction books written in English in the past quarter-century includes beautifully written memoirs but also books of reportage, collections of essays, travelogues, works of cultural criticism, passionate arguments, even a compendium of household tips. What they all share is a commitment to “mostly truth” and the belief that digging deep to find a real story—whether it’s located in your memory, on dusty archive shelves, in Russian literature, in a slum in Mumbai—is a task worth undertaking.

Interesting list.

A few I might read, a few I never would.

But I have too many unread books at home on my bookshelf
to buy more just now..:-)

I'm with you there!  I have a wish list that grows by the day ... but actually buying those books is gonna be on hold until I finish the hundreds I already have and haven't read  :-)

I've read The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon and People Who Eat Darkness: The True Story of a Young Woman Who Vanished From the Streets of Tokyo—and the Evil That Swallowed Her Up.

And, not the least surprising I added 8 more to my list! ;-)

I have read The Lost City of Z and thought it was pretty good. Another good one is The Lost City Of The Monkey God.
