Update your reading lists

What Is the Best Work of American Fiction of the Last 25 Years? - New York Times

The best? Toni Morrison's Beloved

Also-rans? Underworld by Don DeLillo, American Pastoral by Philip Roth, White Noise by Don DeLillo, Where I'm Calling From by Raymond Carver, The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien, Jesus' Son by Denis Johnson, Independence Day by Richard Ford to name a few.

Finally a 'best of' list that makes me feel well-read.
