Top 10 Favourites of Individual Writers: Part B

Do you like the same books as writers? This list is derived from the book "The Top Ten: Writers Pick their Favorite Books" edited by J. Peder Zane.
I have changed the layout from Part A. The list consists of 5 blocks of 11 items. The first item in each block is a monochrome image of an individual author with one of their better known works; this is followed by their 10 favourite books (in descending rank). See the list structure below. Click on the link to go to Part A if you haven't done it yet.
01: Jonathan Franzen (The Corrections)
02-11: Ten favourites
12: Kent Haruf (Plainsong)
13-22: Ten favourites
23: Sue Monk Kidd (The Secret Life of Bees)
24-33: Ten favourites
34: David Mitchell (Cloud Atlas)
35-44: Ten favourites
45: Lorrie Moore (Birds of America)
46-55: Ten favourites
