I was going to put this on DoveTale blog, but we're trying to keep Sher's post on top for a while, so it's here. From the New York Times.
Don't wait too long to go to this page cuz I think they take them down after about 2 weeks.
The thing that bought my eye about this list was the number of novels by Don DeLillo. I've always meant to read him...Underworld in particular...but haven't yet got around to it.
Soon...as they say in Jamaica mon.
Also, the Updike novels, the Rabbit Angstrom series. I've only read the last one, but really liked it.
Finally...the #1 novel is Beloved by Toni Morrison. Never read it...but the review included in this article is by Margaret Atwood!
