- Shirley Hazzard – Transit of Venus
- Mary Gaitskill – Veronica
- Jeanette Winterson – The Passion
- Jonathan Franzen – The Corrections
- Michael Pollen – The Botany of Desire
- Elizabeth Berg – Pull of the Moon

- Margaret Atwood – The Handmaid’s Tale
- Marilyn Robinson – Housekeeping
- Nuala O’Faolain – I Dream of You
