Personally dissapointed not to see Flannery O'Connor's Wise Blood on the list.

*********** A fine book. I've read some of her short stories but that's the only novel. I'd like to remedy that here soon. There are a lot of books on the list that have been mentioned in Rara-avis. From memory, a few besides the McCarthy and Hammett ones that Dave mentions are O'Hara's APPOINTMENT IN SAMARRA, Greene's THE POWER AND THE GLORY, Heller's CATCH-22, and Didion's PLAY IT AS IT LAYS. Most of those are fairly decent, but CATCH-22 was superb.
