If you asked 125 celebrated authors to choose ten books they loved, which ones would come out on top?
Editor J. Peder Zane did just that and came out with some likely suspects and a vast number of books he would never have suspected, including some thoroughly obscure ones. Did Alexander McCall Smith and Lee Smith have any in common? They are both partial to a famous adulteress. And while Paul Auster and Melissa Bank don't agree on anything, they picked top ten Tolstoys, though different ones. And was it Douglas Coupland or A. M. Homes who chose "Fight Club" as their fave? Other great lists, like the top ten mysteries, round out the list making. Zane also includes essays by authors on favorite books, as well as an essay by Sven Birkerts trying to understand the top ten. With synopses of every book listed, "The Top Ten" will be your guide to the classics you've always wanted to read, books cherished by your favorite writers, and many years of reading pleasure ahead.
