The Paris Review Staff’s Favorite Books of 2019

At the risk of sounding hyperbolic, 2019 felt like the year when civilization teetered definitively toward collapse.

“Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden announced today the annual selection of 25 of America’s most influential motion pictures to the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress. Selected because of their cultural, historic and aesthetic importance to the nation’s film heritage, the films in the class of 2019 range from Prince’s 1984 autobiographical hit “Purple Rain” and Spike Lee’s 1986 breakout movie “She’s Gotta Have It” to Disney’s 1959 timeless fairy tale “Sleeping Beauty” and this year’s biggest public vote getter, Kevin Smith’s 1994 “Clerks.” ”
