Among the Better Books

There are obviously many indicators for which books are among the best. Good reviews, sales figures, chatter, etc. Another great indicator for us here at the library is which books get worn out and justify re-ordering, over and over again.

Listed below are a few such titles, all with fresh new copies in the mix:

by William S. Burroughs

Fall On Your Knees
by Anne Marie MacDonald

A Boy of Good Breeding
by Miriam Toews

Portnoy's Complaint
by Philip Roth

The Summer that Never Was
by Peter Robinson

  1. Fall On Your Knees could have been written in half the pages. (Ann Marie MacDonald needs a better editor.)

    Portnoy's Complaint is a great book, also because it's listed in the Random House 100 Best Novels listing. (I like it too.)
