225Mullally.jpgWhat happens when a star from one iconic sitcom meets another? Most often nothing, but sometimes an epic love affair blossoms like a saguaro in the dewy April desert. That's what happened Will & Grace's Megan Mullally crossed paths with Parks and Recreation's Nick Offerman, a story they now share with The Greatest Love Story Ever Told: An Oral History, a series of intimate conversations between the couple, including photos, anecdotes, and the occasional puzzle.

So what has one half of this Hollywood Power Love-Duo been reading this year? See her picks and why she chose them below, and look here for the latest celebrity favorites. For even more recommendations, learn more about the Amazon Books Editors' picks for the Best Books of the Year.

Sabrina by Nick Drnaso

Nick Drnaso is the best graphic novelist I’ve come across since Chris Ware. Format aside, this novel comes the closest to capturing the current mass fever-dream we’re all wading through together—like a multitude, a massive unsuspecting tide, of innocents—than anything in recent memory. Spare yet rich, disturbing yet hopeful, it will stay firmly lodged in that hippocampus we’ve all recently come to know and love. An absolutely essential book-of-the-moment.

The Friend by Sigrid Nunez

This exquisite novel addresses an array of larger themes with the lightest touch imaginable: love, grief, companionship, memory, death, culture.... Throughout all, Nunez’s prose is pristine. There is a subtle but perfect poetry skimming just below the surface of every sentence, finally emerging full force into the light in the final pages. A beautiful, unsentimental, profound book—a true rarity.

Kudos, Transit, Outline by Rachel Cusk

This trilogy by Rachel Cusk has been a revelation. She has a spare, dignified, intensely private—for lack of a better word—writing style. With their guarded, wry, intensely observant female “protagonist”, each novel works as a stand-alone, but as a trilogy it is a triumph of the most subtle but powerful (dare I say) feminist literature. Absolutely gorgeous reading, like being carried on the waves, knowing for certain you’ll reach the shore... or will you?
