100 Great Novels by Dead Authors - Page 2

This list was posted on the Medium website by Blair Mahoney, who is the editor of Poem of the Day on that site. It is a companion challenge to "100 Great Novels By Living Authors". Each book has a 10-20 line summary which could help you decide whether the book is worth reading.
The source list seems quite up-to-date, taking into account the recent death of Philip Roth in 2018.
