Best Contemporary Fiction
The list author says: "Thirty-ish superlative books, in semi-particular order."
"Best book ever, man."
"Wallacian richness. Bancers, dentists, and schmendricks will have bricks popped and snat sprayed in their direction."
White Noise: (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)
"The turning point for me between non-fiction and fiction. Which is to say, I used to read non-fiction almost exclusively, then read this, and changed teams (literarily)."
The Brothers K
"An American Brothers Karamazov. Hilarious and poignant."
The People of Paper
"Turbo post-modern experimentalism. Probably the coolest book I can think of."
The Children's Hospital
"Magic realism at its most apocalyptic."
"More excellent magic realism from McSweeney's."
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
"Great main character. I never plan on seeing the movie."
"You've probably read this already. Apparently every house-wife in America has too."
Underworld: A Novel
"Big American novel. If you like baseball, waste, and the Cold War, you'll dig this."
The New York Trilogy (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)
"Three noir-esque detective novellas in one volume. "City of Glass" is amazing."
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
"Very Wallacian, but Dominican. Footnotes included."
Gob's Grief: A Novel
"Civil War magic realism with Walt Whitman as a main character. I recommend reading this before The Children's Hospital by Adrian."
The History of Love
"Very similar to her (now ex-) husband's writing (Jonathan Safran Foer)."
The Pale King
"Unfinished, but no big deal; it feels just like most other postmodern novels."
The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay
"Comic book enthusiasts rejoice."
A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius
"Most girls I know don't like this book, probably because it gives away the secrets of the male psyche and leaves them (the girls) wanting."
Everything Matters!: A Novel
"Apocalyptic, kind of like Donnie Darko; but actually good."
Middlesex: A Novel (Oprah's Book Club)
High Fidelity: A Novel
"One of few books with a great movie adaptation. Set in the UK here though."
Slaughterhouse-Five: A Novel (Modern Library 100 Best Novels)
"So it goes..."
The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle: A Novel
"Surrealism trapped in a well."
Everything is Illuminated
The Virgin Suicides: A Novel
"Adolescent crushing meets philosophy."
"Follow Lee Harvey Oswald through the pages of Marx and Engels and into the Texas Theatre."
The Great Perhaps: A Novel
"This dude has seizures whenever he sees clouds. Nuff said."
The Marriage Plot (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition)
"A thinly veiled life of David Foster Wallace."
The Crying of Lot 49 (Perennial Fiction Library)
"Short but dense, and very influential."
Big Machine: A Novel
"Janitorial magic realism."
The Final Solution: A Story of Detection (P.S.)
"Charming detective novel. Great Jay Ryan cover."
Kapitoil: A Novel
"Imagine if Abed from Community wrote a first-person novel and was a computer programmer and Qatari immigrant. Meet Karim Issar."
God Is Dead
"Interwoven short stories with theological density."
Like You'd Understand, Anyway: Stories
"Excellent short story collection."
