I've read through the lists of many other sources, and these are the fictional works which recur the greatest number of times, in my memory at least:
1. Lorrie Moore, A Gate at the Stairs.
2. Colum McCann, Let the Great World Spin.
3. Dan Chaon, Await Your Reply: A Novel.
4. David Small, Stitches: A Memoir.
By the way, via Literary Saloon, here is a French best books of the year list. They pick Let the Great World Spin as the book of the year, non-fiction included. I will be reading it soon.
