Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) And Tevye the Dairyman and The Railroad Stories goes all the way back to 1894 ... (deleted, with regret).

Ben The Autobiography of Malcolm X: As Told to Alex Haley was first published 1965. The well-known edition on this list was published in 1987, but I think we're talking about FIRST editions. (If not, I'm going to add
The Brothers Karamazov to the 2010 list!)

Ben Deleted The Autobiography of Malcolm X: As Told to Alex Haley . Published in 1965. If you wish to vote for it, please see: http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/13...


message 4: by Kamas (new)

Kamas Kirian I don't think Clear and Present Danger came out in 1987. I'm pretty sure it came out in 1989.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Yep. I'll remove it.


message 6: by Rick (new)

Rick Wood Love Watchmen and Redwall but they were both released in 1986.


message 7: by Rosa (new)

Rosa The Complete Maus was published in '86.
