The Best American Fiction of the Last 25 Years.
And for God's sake...Philip Roth is more boring than aspirin.
Blood Meridian I can see. There's a point in that book where you realize you're reading something that will never leave you. For me at least. I remember having that thought somewhere near the end, while the boy and the preacher are being hunted across the desert by the Judge and his man-child sidekick. A bizarre, vaguely Biblical sequence.
Jesus' Son, also. So glad that's on the list. Surprising, too.
And The Known World. Certainly my favorite novel of the last decade. Incredible.
But my personal favorite novel from the last 25 years is nowhere on the list. That book is American Psycho, which in my opinion is rivaled only by Lolita for the twin titles of Most Disturbing and Most Hilarious Book Ever.
