What are the ten greatest works of literature of all time? That's the question posed by The Top Ten. 125 leading writers--such as Tom Wolfe, Annie Proulx, Stephen King, Jonathan Franzen, Norman Mailer and Mary Gaitskill--were asked to give their top ten lists. The Booksmith Gang has also risen to this challenge.

Here you'll find our Top Ten books of all time. These come to you highly recommended, but you don't have to take our word for it!
