A Lifetime Reading Plan: One Hundred 20th Century Writers

As promised, this is my follow-up to the classics challenge at the link. It is derived from "The New Lifetime Reading Plan: The Classic Guide to World Literature, Revised and Expanded."
Definitely NOT a standard collection of 20th century literature. It even has 2 Australian works!
