Cover of the Sunday NYT Book Review yesterday. The essay by A.O. Scott is pretty interesting. Scott’s most fitting commentary “I was surprised at how few of the highly praised, boldly ambitious books by younger writers – by which I mean writers under 50 – were mentioned. One vote each for “The Corrections” and “The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay,” none for “Infinite Jest” or “The Fortress of Solitude,” a single vote for Richard Powers, none for William T. Vollmann, and so on.”
I preferred any of those books to the Top 5 from the survey.
