Books, books, glorious books

“Selected by the Guardian’s Review team and a panel of expert judges, this list includes only novels – no memoirs, no short stories, no long poems – from any decade and in any language.  Originally published in thematic supplements – love, crime, comedy, family and self, state of the nation, science fiction and fantasy, war and travel – they appear here for the first time in a single list. “
Looking for recommendations?  The Guardian’s “1000 novels everyone must read” might help.

    Oh my God, what a bizarre list! But it has a bunch of my cranky long-time favorites on it — The Man who was Thursday! — Fair Stood the Wind for France! — Lucky Jim! — Nightmare Abbey!

    I don’t have much time for novels, any more: I probably won’t read half of these before I die. But this is a seriously fun list.
