Best work of American fiction of the last 25 years

Check the list here. Have you read any?

The top book, Beloved, is by Oprah's favorite author, Toni Morrison. Oprah even produced and appeared in the film adaptation of the book; the film did not meet with any great commercial (or critical) success.

The only one I've read is The Plot Against America. I own but haven't yet read The Known World.


  1. I think this must be the first list of its kind that I have seen, where I haven't read a single item.

  2. Ransom: You should know that I was thinking of you as I typed this post. :) I thought "Plot" was merely okay, certainly not one of the best 25.
