No Pynchon there; not even in the list of names they left off. Can't take it seriously.
Twelve and six halves. These lists always make me feel unedumacated.I have seen 14 of them as movies.
Oh, I agree about Pynchon. And, while I dearly love As I Lay Dying, even Faulkner would not have put it on a list of the hundred best. Nor is there any mention of Richard Powers, a considerable lapse. Nor of Nathanael West. Nor of John Gardner. No Andre Malraux. No Jorge Amado. And how could a British publication ignore The Horse's Mouth?A very quirky list, it seems.
Dang. And I just put a book out.
Hit the enter button too soon.
Twenty. Most under duress as a student, but Three Men In A Boat was (and remains) a positive delight.
