The Best of the Backlist 2013

Even though most of the books I read this year were 2013 titles, some of my absolute favorites were from years past. These are my best backlist books: 

I Await the Devil’s Coming by Mary MacLane (review)
The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell (mini review)
A Land More Kind Than Home by Wiley Cash 
Anagrams by Lorrie Moore (mini review)
Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner 
Every Man Dies Alone by Hans Fallada 
No One is Here Except All of Us by Ramona Ausubel 

One of my goals for 2014 is to squeeze a little extra time into my reading for older titles so I can find some great gems like these. What were the best backlist books you read this year?
