The Best Novels You’ve Never Read

The New York Magazine asked ask 61 professional critics (and some other writers) to pick the underrated book of the past ten years hoping to unearth a buried genius. It was felt there would be a consensus and a clear winner was expected—one novelist did emerge victorious—garnering a grand total two votes.

The NY-Mag exercise reminded me of a few memes that were a rage in the Indian Blogosphere some many months back:
# Tagging Books
# Books You Couldn't Finish Reading
# Worst Books Ever/ The Most Overrated Books/ Purple Paragraphs
