BBC Art's 100 Novels That Shaped Our World - Page 2

Stories have the power to change us. We asked a panel of leading writers, curators and critics to choose 100 genre-busting novels that have had an impact on their lives, and this is the result. These English language novels, written over the last 300 years, range from children's classics to popular page-turners. Organised into themes, they reflect the ways books help shape and influence our thinking.
