The Modern Library: the 200 best novels in English since 19501950s

45 Works 0 Livros
Based on the book by Carmen Callil and Colm Tóibín, published by Picador (1999). See the list of books on the Clare County Library's website. This list is not associated with the publisher mostrar mais Modern Library.

The list has 202 items; Callil and Tóibín could not agree on the best work of V.S. Naipaul, and of Saul Bellow, so each of their choices was included for those two authors. In addition the first edition stopped short of 200 (at 194) and invited readers to send in suggestions for the final six; these were included in subsequent editions. These six are annotated on their listing below.
