125 Best Novels by Women

A thoroughly subjective list, of course, although I took into account various "Best of..." lists.
I also made a conscious effort to include some non-Anglophone novels, although the list is still heavily Anglocentric (only 19 out of 100 novels/ novellas were not written originally in English).
