100 Great Novels by Living 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 Dead Authors". Each book has a 10-20 line summary which could help decide whether the book is worth reading.
The source list seems to be a little inaccurate, not taking into account the relatively recent deaths of the following authors!
Gilbert Adair (2011)
E.L. Doctorow (2015)
G√ľnter Grass (2015)
Russell Hoban (2011)
Ursula K. Le Guin (2018)
Terry Pratchett (2015)
