Who among us can resist another list of book titles?

This list is quite personal, not particularly balanced or PC, which is nice for a change. It is heavily weighted on the side of current publishing, with 122 titles from the 21st century, 73 from the 20th century and only 6 from before that. I don't mind that at all, as the classics appear on so many other lists. Sheridan is doing a service for other readers by attempting to distill what is exceptional today, from her own reading. She breaks the 201 books out in charming subcategories. Chapter 1 is American't Dream - stories about trying and failing to get ahead in America. Her one page descriptors do their job, making you want to hunt up the books and read.

Quite a good resource for librarians. ( )
