Best 100 Arabic Novels

Well, this is a famous list, I don't know who did it, according to wikipedia it's the Arab Writers Union, but I'm still doubtful about it. What I noticed is that they picked one title per an author. Some of the best arabic novelists ever, like Naguib Mahfouz, have only one title in a list of 100. I think diplomacy has done a good job to keep the list "balanced" between country members.
I tried to put the name in English and the cover in Arabic, sometimes, you don't even have a good information. Anyway, how much have you read?
