284253, Create a new literary canon (1900-2007).
Posted by Errol Walton Barrow, Tue May-22-07 10:50 AM
Not your most favouritest books ever, but the books that in your opinon are the greatest works of the last century or so. I guess fiction only. No repeats, just add on if you don't see a particular book there. I'll put five on it:

"The Sound and the Fury" - William Faulkner
"For Whom the Bell Tolls" - Ernest Hemingway
"Song of Solomon" - Toni Morrison
"Things Fall Apart" - Chinua Achebe
"The Watchmen" - Alan Moore

Ahhh, four easy classics, and one new classic to appear edgy. Verrrrry pussy.
