GUEST,Neil D BS: Greatest American Books (152* d) RE: BS: Greatest American Books 09 Jul 10


"Huckleberry Finn" is the obvious first choice and speaking of Mark Twain, the first volume of his autobiography is due out in November. He had dictated his life story during the his last years but the mandated that it not be published until 100 years after his death in 1910.
    I only saw one mention of Capote's "In Cold Blood", the prototype of modern crime writing.
    "Lolita" was written by a Russian emigree but Nabokov always referred to it as his American novel.
