Writer Kevin Brockmeier's 50 or So Favourite Books - Page 2

This is a set of book suggestions by writer Kevin Brockmeier, best known for "The Brief History of the Dead". To quote the source article: "Like most writers on the road with a book, he's constantly asked for recommendations. Unlike most other writers on the road with a book, he likes to make lists." His Top 10 are 1, 2, 6, 9, 11, 27, 28, 40, 42 & 44.
To quote Brockmeier himself:
"Several rules:
(1) I have listed these books in alphabetical order by the author's last name...
(2) I have chosen no more than one book per author, except in those cases where a pair of books or a trilogy seemed to call for a single shared listing.
(3) I have tried to be honest, which is why there are so few classics on this list and so many children's books, semi-obscure fantasists, and slim, sad coming of age stories".
