Waterstones Book of the Year 2020 Shortlist
Since it was first introduced in 2012, Waterstones Book of the Year has become an institution, recognised by readers as a highlight of the calendar and a benchmark of true literary excellence. Nominated by our booksellers, recent winners have included Sally Rooney’s Normal People and The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy.
As befits a truly extraordinary year, 2020’s selection takes in everything from transformative novels to revelatory non-fiction, and from inspiring children’s writing to exquisite works of reference.
