How to Be Well Read: A Guide to 500 Great Novels and a Handful of Literary Curiosities

This is a (hopefully complete) list of books mentioned in "How to be Well Read: A guide to 500 great novels and a handful of literary curiosities" by John Sutherland. One of the titles (Gaslight, Gaiters and Gonophs by Jack Northcliffe) was a fake novel, so it's not on this list.
All the items you see here are Sutherland's choice, not mine.
