Now I would like to add Winnie the Pooh by A.A.Miln. May it be sixteen? Or children books are excluded? Or we should exclude Gilgamesh? (Be sure I didn't translate it, Sui... I do not speak Sumerian... don't have Sumerian font in my PC anyway. )

Hmm, I always find these kind of questions rather hard. Same problem with "top 10 albums" for example, I wouldn’t know where to start.. and I'm such a doubter..

Anyway:

F. Scott Fitzgerald – the Great Gatsby
John Irving – The World According to Garp
John Irving – Hotel New Hampshire
Richard Yates – Revolutionary Road
D.H. Lawrence - Lady Chatterley’s Lover
Gustave Flaubert - Madame Bovary
Gerard Reve – De Avonden
Patrick Süskind – The Perfume
Truman Capote – In Cold Blood
J.D. Salinger - Catcher in the Rye
Haruki Murakami - South of the Border, West of the Sun
Donna Tartt - The Secret History

to be continued probably..

Pardon me, Sui, but I am more a kind of sitting library... If I read less, I'd walk more... And I'd be slim as well.

Liked Elisa's list too... She inspired me to think more of some modern prosaists. My God, so many books, how can one decide? Now I'd like to add Malcolm Lawry and his "Under Vulcano"... and Peter Carey and his "Oscar and Lucinda"... and "The Blind Assasin" by Margaret Atwood... and... will someone stop me? Sui, Slavica, please... just stop me.



P.S. Elisa, suppose you recommend "The Parfume"? I saw it (translated! alas!) here and from the very start I have a feeling it's something worth reading. Can you compare it to something? I would like to hear somebody's personal impressions, for I don't like to read "noncertified" books.

The Perfume's movie is also made... But mostly they say no better than the book...
Also Duda to the new authors list, you can add Jean Christopher Grange, he has magnificant novels

Thanks for the idea, Sui. Though it will be your fault when I became a fat woman...

Aenigma (x) - you made my day with Trollop! Can I guess you are secret lover of Dickens too? (I use to read "Oliver Twist" again and again under my pillow still. )
