Best of 2015: Nonfiction & Graphic Novels (updated!)

The last category in my Best of 2015 – Graphic Novels & Nonfiction – highlights my weakness.  Hint: it’s not GN’s (thanks to a GN-crazy daughter and student body).  No surprises: it’s nonfiction. No excuses – I’ve got to do better! Of those I did read, these are ones that stood out.

Best “this is how every history class focusing on Watergate should be taught” primer: Most Dangerous by Steve Sheinkin
