It IS fun to compare lists, isn't it?

I'm very impressed with your selections from the Laureates read to date. As you can see, I tended to stick to a favorite or two. :) I can't believe I've never read Faulkner or O-Neill. What's up with that?! I just realized I forgot Children of the Alley by Mahfouz. Easy to fix! I've got some V. S. Naipaul on hand. Snow by Pamuk, too. If only there were enough hours in a day!
