Best Books of a New Century?
Posted by: Neil Hollands
The Millions website asked a panel of 56 authors and critics to name the best fiction published since the year 2000. The compiled results should be interesting fodder for book groups. How many have you read? How many has your book group discussed?
Here’s their list of the top twenty. The top five were Jonathan Franzen’s The Corrections, Edward P. Jones’ The Known World, David Mitchell’s The Cloud Atlas, 2666 by Roberto Bolano, and Pastoralia by George Saunders.
What do you think readers? Are these the books we’ll remember years from now?
