The Best Books Ever Written

Let's be clear: literary lists are essentially obscenities. Lists are the domain of menus, laundry, and rotisserie baseball; literature is the domain of the ineffable and the unquantifiable. All of those characters and figures mixed together have an unsavory and promiscuous quality to them. Take it from a critic who has repeatedly engaged in this particular vice.

Fiction, nonfiction, poetry, modernism, and antiquity are all fair game in this ultimate fighting technique, with the exception of eye-gouging and fish-hooking. Then you printed and compiled all the lists, added up the figures, and utilized them to compile a final list of the Top 10 performers of all time.
