If You're Reading This...

then chances are good that you can read.

Which means that you might have read other things, like novels, or newspapers, like the New York Times.

Well, Ms. Smarty-Pants, your powers have not gone unnoticed by the NYT! The Times has seen fit to ask people more well-read than you who attend MANY more cocktail parties in mock turtlenecks than you could ever HOPE to, and who KNEW that James Frey was lying WAY before Oprah did.

The Times has compiled its list of the BEST American Novel of the Past 25 Years. The winner is, not surprisingly, Beloved, by Toni Morrison.

If you, like me, are surprised by the rest of the list, I invite you to post your vote as a comment. My vote is for Chabon's The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Klay.
