So I was pleased to see this list of "New Classics" from Entertainment Weekly. Many of the books included are books that I have long wanted to read, but just never seem to get to. Now that they are listed as classics, I can move them up the priority list and perhaps I won't feel like I am continuously missing out on something.
1. The Road , Cormac McCarthy (2006)
2. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, J.K. Rowling (2000)
3. Beloved, Toni Morrison (1987)
4. The Liars' Club, Mary Karr (1995)
5. American Pastoral, Philip Roth (1997)
6. Mystic River, Dennis Lehane (2001)
7. Maus, Art Spiegelman (1986/1991)
8. Selected Stories, Alice Munro (1996)
