Alternative "Classics" : Books That Aren't on Most Lists of Classics, but Should Be - Page 2

The title says it all: 100 books that are classics of their kind, but are seldom listed as such here. Our compiler arbitrarily set the list at 100 to keep it manageable, and limited himself to only 1 book per author.
