Publishers Weekly's 10 best books of 2009

Publishers Weekly named its top ten books of 2009. One title on the list:
The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon
David Grann (Doubleday)

In this classic adventure tale, New Yorker writer Grann—who gets winded climbing the stairs of his New York City walkup—follows in the footsteps of early–20th-century Amazon jungle explorer Percy Fawcett, who disappeared along with his son on a 1925 expedition. Grann expertly and energetically weaves the story of Fawcett's explorations with that of his own.
