J. Peder Zane asked 125 celebrated authors to choose ten books they loved. Did Alexander McCall Smith and Lee Smith have any in common? They are both partial to a famous adulteress. While Paul Auster and Melissa Bank don't agree on anything, they picked top ten Tolstoys, though different ones. Was it Douglas Coupland or A.M. Homes who chose Fight Club as their favourite? Zane includes essays by authors on favourite books, as well as an essay by Sven Birkerts trying to understand the top ten. Authors include: John Banville, Julian Barnes, Andrea Barrett, Peter Carey, Jim Crace, Michael Cunningham, Margaret Drabble, A.L. Kennedy, Stephen King, David Lodge, Norman Mailer, Claire Messud, Joyce Carol Oates, Annie Proulx, Jonathan Raban, Ian Rankin, Barry Unsworth and Tom Wolfe. With synopses of every book listed, "The Top Ten" is a guide to the classics, to some likely suspects and some thoroughly obscure titles, to books cherished by favourite writers and to years of pleasurable reading.Reseña del editor:
You'll find the answer in The Top Ten: Writers Pick Their Favorite Books: the ultimate guide to the world's greatest books. As writers such as Norman Mailer, Annie Proulx, Stephen King, Jonathan Franzen, Claire Messud, Margaret Drabble, Michael Chabon and Peter Carey name the ten books that have meant the most to them, you'll be reminded of books you have always loved and introduced to works awaiting your discovery. The Top Ten includes summaries of 544 books-each of which is considered to be among the ten greatest books ever written by at least one leading writer. In addition to each writer's Top Ten List, the book features Top Ten Lists tabulated from their picks, including: * The Top Ten Books of All Time * The Top Ten Books by Living Writers * The Top Ten Books of the Twentieth Century * The Top Ten Mysteries * The Top Ten Comedies Already sparking debate, The Top Ten will help readers answer the most pressing question of all: What should I read next?
