Re: Top ten favourite novels
Hard. I'm expanding it to novellas and not just novels.
In no particular order,
Terra Nostra, Carlos Fuentes
One Hundred Years of Solitude, Gabriel García Márquez
Middlemarch, George Eliot
Spring Snow, Mishima Yukio
Snow Country, Kawabata Yasunari
Invisible Man, Ralph Ellison
Herzog, Saul Bellow
The Master and the Margarita, Mikhail Bulgakov
Things Fall Apart, Chinua Achebe
I'm having a lot of trouble choosing the tenth. Madame Bovary, Palace Walk and Palace of Desire (Mahfouz), Explosion in a Cathedral (Carpentier) The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (Spark), and Little, Big (Crowley) could all fit in there.
