A new entry in the "what should I read next?" genre, this volume has a hook: most of the 100 suggested books can be read in one evening. The Major brothers offer recommendations in nonfiction, general fiction, fantasy, humor, mystery, history, public affairs, memoirs, science, and travel. Most are by English or U.S. authors and were published in the 20th century. Each three-page entry includes a description of the book, information about the author, and an evaluation of what makes the book distinctive. Suggestions for additional writings by the author are often included. Among the Majors' favorites are F. Scott Fitzgerald, Raymond Chandler, Virginia Woolf, Philip Roth, Walter Mosley, Dylan Thomas, Russell Baker, and Laura Ingalls Wilder. The Majors have coedited two poetry anthologies and coauthored The New Lifetime Reading Plan. Recommended for public libraries. Shana C.
