Having previously written a post about 50 quintessential American novels, it seemed only fair to grant equal time to another country.
As it happens, I've come across an article listing 50 quintessential British novels. My, how convenient! :)
Many of my own favorites are on this list. THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE, POSSESSION, LORD OF THE RINGS, 1984 and BRAVE NEW WORLD, just to name a few. And SHERLOCK HOLMES, of course.
Incidentally, my decision to write this post has nothing to do with this rather stunning news at all.
