August 17th, 2010 by Bob Bly

The other day one of my subscribers asked me, “Bob, do you read novels?” The answer, of course, is yes.

Here are my 10 favorite novels (the list includes a play widely published in book form and a “nonfiction novel”):

1–Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller.
2–A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving.
3–Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.
4–The Shootist by Glen Swarthout.
5–Lord of Light by Roger Zelazny.
6–To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
7–In Cold Blood by Truman Capote.
8–South of Broad by Pat Conroy.
9–The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
10. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien.

What’s your favorite novel?
