Classics That Are Never Listed on Lists of 'Classics'

I mean, you can probably find a lot of these on book lists somewhere, but generally I don't see them unless the list itself is a lot longer and more comprehensive. These are great books, though, and if you see them in a bookstore don't let their lack of popularity dissuade you from giving them a shot.
