Afforded the opportunity to add an additional 25 books to my ranking of the greatest novels of all times, I have undertaken a full-scale review of The Novel [1]00 rather than simply promote the most deserving candidates from the honorable mentions list. Rarely is an author given a “do-over,” and more than ve years after the initial conception of The Novel [1]00, I have been allowed to test my rst choices from my current perspective, while adding another 25 titles to the mix. In making my choice and arranging the ranking, I have been guided, as with the original edition of The Novel [1]00, by a self-imposed selection criteria to try to identify the novels that have exerted the strongest impact, that have changed or altered the form in signi cant ways, and, based on critical con- sensus and the test of time, that continue to deliver importance, relevance, and enjoyment years, decades, or centuries after publication. Among the new entries selected, nine are additional works by novelists already represented—Austen, Defoe, Dickens, Eliot, Faulkner, Lawrence, Nabokov, Stendhal, and Woolf—that have allowed me to increase consider- ation of the range and achievement of these superb writers. The remaining 6 novels represent works published between 73 (Manon Lescaut by Abbé Prévost) and 997 (American Pastoral by Philip Roth) and originate from 2 different countries—Austria, Brazil, Britain, Canada, China, Czechoslova- kia, France, India, Japan, Russia, Trinidad, and the United States. All of the novels selected are more than able to withstand a comparison with the great- est of the form, and I hope, by including them in the ranking, I have given readers a chance to reencounter old favorites and possibly make some new acquaintances as well. As to the ranking, I will let the changes I have made stand on their own without speci c comment, only to say that any such ranking is of course sub- jective and unstable over time. To the great chagrin of my students, I often comment that you need to reread the greatest works of literature perhaps every ve years, not because they change but because you do. Since rst mak- ing my choices and rankings for The Novel [1]00 six years ago, I have become, x THE NOVEL 00 if not a better reader, at least a different one, and my decisions re ect that (for better or worse). The ranking of greatest novels of all time may appear to some as misguided and foolish in the extreme—too much subjectivity masquerading as objective truth—but it has been done primarily to provoke consideration and comparison of literary greatness to further appreciate the achievement that is on display in these 25 novels.

Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best novels of all time Published in 1975, Ragtime changed our very concept of what a novel could be. An extraordinary tapestry, Ragtime captures the spirit of America in the era between the turn of the century and the First World War. The story opens in 1906 in New Rochelle, New York, at the home of an affluent American family. One lazy Sunday afternoon, the famous escape artist Harry Houdini swerves his car into a telephone pole outside their house. And almost magically, the line between fantasy and historical fact, between real and imaginary characters, disappears. Henry Ford, Emma Goldman, J. P. Morgan, Evelyn Nesbit, Sigmund Freud, and Emiliano Zapata slip in and out of the tale, crossing paths with Doctorow's imagined family and other fictional characters, including an immigrant peddler and a ragtime musician from Harlem whose insistence on a point of justice drives him to revolutionary violence.

"Smollett's Don Quixote first appeared in 1755 and was for many years the most popular English-language version of Cervantes's masterpiece. However, soon after the start of the nineteenth century, its reputation began to suffer. Rival translators, literary hucksters, and careless scholars initiated or fed a variety of charges against Smollett - even plagiarism. For almost 130 years no publisher risked reprinting it.".

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER As a healthy, happy thirty-nine-year-old mother with no family history of breast cancer, being diagnosed with the disease rocked Hollye Jacobs’s world. Having worked as a nurse, social worker, and child development specialist for fifteen years, she suddenly found herself in the position of moving into the hospital bed. She was trained as a clinician to heal. In her role as patient, the healing process became personal. Exquisitely illustrated with full-color photographs by Hollye’s close friend, award-winning photographer Elizabeth Messina, The Silver Lining is both Hollye’s memoir and a practical, supportive resource for anyone whose life has been touched by breast cancer. In the first section of each chapter, she describes with humor and wisdom her personal experience and gives details about her diagnosis, treatment, side effects, and recovery. The second section of each chapter is told from Hollye’s point of view as a medical expert. In addition to providing a glossary of important terms and resources, she addresses the physical and emotional aspects of treatment, highlights what patients can expect, and provides action steps, including: What to do when facing a diagnosis How to find the best and most supportive medical team What questions to ask What to expect at medical tests How to talk with and support children How to relieve or avoid side effects How to be a supportive friend or family member How to find Silver Linings Looking for and finding Silver Linings buoyed Hollye from the time of her diagnosis throughout her double mastectomy, chemotherapy, radiation, and recovery. They gave her the balance and perspective to get her through the worst days, and they compose the soul of the book. The Silver Lining of Hollye’s illness is that she can now use the knowledge gleaned from her experience to try to make it better for those who have to follow her down this difficult path. This is why she is sharing her story. Hollye is the experienced girlfriend who wants to help shed some light in the darkness, provide guidance through the confusion, and hold your hand every step of the way. At once comforting and instructive, realistic and inspiring, The Silver Lining is a visually beautiful, poignant must-read for everyone who has been touched by cancer.

Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett reveals the real story behind Hillary Clinton’s deep state collaborators in government and exposes their nefarious actions during and after the 2016 election. The Russia Hoax reveals how persons within the FBI and Barack Obama’s Justice Department worked improperly to help elect Hillary Clinton and defeat Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. When this suspected effort failed, those same people appear to have pursued a contrived investigation of President Trump in an attempt to undo the election results and remove him as president. The evidence suggests that partisans within the FBI and the Department of Justice, driven by personal animus and a misplaced sense of political righteousness, surreptitiously acted to subvert electoral democracy in our country. The book will examine: How did Hillary Clinton manage to escape prosecution despite compelling evidence she violated the law? Did Peter Strzok, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Loretta Lynch, and others obstruct justice by protecting Clinton? Why was there never a legitimate criminal investigation of Clinton in the Uranium One case? Are the text messages exchanged between Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page evidence of a concerted effort to undermine the electoral process? Was there ever any real evidence of "collusion" between Trump and the Russians? Did Trump obstruct justice in the firing of Comey or was he legally exercising his constitutional authority? Did the FBI and DOJ improperly use a discredited "dossier" about Trump to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on Trump associates? Should Muller have disqualified himself under the special counsel law based on glaring conflicts of interest? Was fired National Security Adviser Michael Flynn unfairly charged with making a false statement? With insightful analysis and a fact-filled narrative, The Russia Hoax delves deeply into Democrat wrongdoing.
