Well, being a patriotic Canadian and a book junkie, I'll agree that Atwood is very, very good. My favorite of hers is still The Blind Assassin. I liked Oryx and Crake - the prose was as precision-fine as ever, though the dystopias do get a little shopworn after a while.Originally Posted by AJane
My votes go to Philip Roth's The Plot Against America and Orhan Pamuk's Snow. Provacative and startling, in an ugly-beautiful way, which of course is the best way there is.
