List This

Here's yet another interesting list: the 100 best English language novels since 1923. My favorite inclusion is Deliverance by James Dickey. The movie is infamous for reasons that will not be discussed here, but it's actually a pretty good movie. The book, though, is top-notch. The descriptions are so spot on and yet so tight that the book is like a series of pleasant surprises.

My buddy Dave of And a Silent Q will appreciate one of the inclusions: Ubik, by the one and only Philip K. Dick.

Dick had to make the list for no other reason than he wrote so many of them. But seriously, I can agree that Ubik should have made the list.
