The imaginative culture of the literary world will not suffer from this very useful syllabus for a lifetime program of 'the pleasures of the text'. Criteria for inclusion? 'There are trends in reading as there are in everything, but there are certain novels that stand outside the currents of ordinary change and represent something close to enduring human value.' Presented in chapters: Pre-1700; 1700s; 1800s; 1900s; 2000s. A consummate A-Z listing of novelists, from Chinua Achebe to Stefan Zweig. With illustrations and biographic authors' photos. 960p.
