Every December, the New York Times releases their annual "Notable Books" list, which celebrates the year's greatest literary achievements. Studded with big names and remarkable first-time authors, it represents the cream-of-the-crop in literary talent, and serves as a touchstone for what—or whom—belongs in everyone's TBR piles. Earlier this month, the Times announced their honorees. At the same time, there was room for newcomers, too—like Gabriel Tallent and his dark debut, My Absolute Darling. Nevertheless, we started thinking about previous New York Times Notable Books that we feel still deserve the spotlight. While this is by no means an exhaustive list, the 20 books below are some of our favorite past honorees—and are all worthy of a revisit. Surrounded by the figures of their past, memories of the 60s and 70s quickly resurface, and the resulting conversations capture the unique experiences of the Vietnam generation.
