The Chronology of American Literature in the 20th Century: 1990-1994

This is the 2nd instalment of my chronology of American fiction. It is a list of novels, novellas & short story collections by American authors published in 1990-1994. It includes Pulitzer Prize, PEN/Faulkner Award & National Book Award winners. There are also several works by Nobel Prize winners. Click on the link to go to the previous instalment, which covers 1995-1999. BTW, as is my usual practice, all the books in my list image are actually in the challenge.
The source is "The Chronology of American Literature: America's Literary Achievements from the Colonial Era to Modern Times" by Daniel S. Burt (2004).
The books by year are are:
1990: 1-32
1991: 33--59
1992: 60-88
1993: 89-115
1994: 116-146
