The 101 Greatest American Novels (Ranker)

"The list asks the question, 'What is the best American novel?' American novels can represent the spirit of the age in the United States during the time it was written or the time it was set in. The American novel is written by those who are knowledgeable about the state, culture and even the perspective of those during that time. Some of these best American novels may have also been on the reading curriculum in school." - ranker.com
