Hungry Mind Review's 100 Best 20th-Century American Books of Fiction and Nonfiction - Page 3

To celebrate my achievement of reaching a lower numerical rank on the "Published Lists Users" leader board than my age (63), I offer you this challenge.
The source list includes distinguished novels, nonfiction and collections of short fiction. "Opening the list to nonfiction makes sense in a literary century that has witnessed the blurring of the line between fiction and nonfiction" (Bart Schneider)
Hungry Mind Bookstore was a well-known bookstore in St. Paul. In 1986 owner David Unowsky launched the Hungry Mind Review (now defunct) as a critical literary journal, with founding editor Bart Schneider. List image David Unowsky.
