Sentimental Surrealist This list could desperately use more contemporary fiction.


message 2: by Kristin (new)

Kristin Why are there 2 #99's?


message 3: by Cassandra (new)

Cassandra Why are people unable to "like" the list?


message 4: by Tom (new)

Tom Because it's a static list that duplicates the Modern Library's top 100 list.


message 5: by Ulrich (new)

Ulrich Krieghund This order does not match the Modern Library one.


message 6: by Cassandra (new)

Cassandra I wish that this list would allow you to "LIKE" it. Once LIKED is is saved to a person's account and can easily be referenced. I am working my way through several Best of lists and this is a fantastic feature, unfortunately not all lists have.
