The Top Ten Writers Pick Their Favorite Books

  • This is the best of times and the worst of times for passionate readers. We are living in a Golden Age, as online retailers make millions of books just a click away. Never before have so many works been within such easy reach. But when anything is possible, choice becomes torture. What to pick? Where to start? This one? That one? How about this—and that? What will I like? What’s worth my time? To answer these questions, we turned to the experts, asking 125 top American and British authors to list their 10 favorite works of fiction of all time. The results were published in “The Top Ten: Writers Pick Their Favorite Books.” Edited by J. Peder Zane, “The Top Ten” is the ultimate guide to the world’s greatest books. As Norman Mailer, Annie Proulx, Stephen King, Joyce Carol Oates, Jonathan Franzen, Claire Messud, Margaret Drabble, Michael Chabon, Peter Carey and others celebrate the books that have meant the most to them, you’ll be reminded of books you love and introduced to works awaiting your discovery.
