The 100 Novels That Shaped Our World (According to the BBC…)


Well, here’s an interesting list, courtesy of BBC Arts.

The 100 Novels That Shaped Our World, split into handy categories Identity / Love, Sex & Romance / Adventure / Life, Death & Other Worlds / Politics, Power & Protest / Class & Society / Coming Of Age / Family & Friendship / Crime & Conflict  and last but not least, Rule Breakers, all chosen by a panel of 6.


The panel are Radio 4 Front Row presenter and Times Literary Supplement editor Stig Abell, broadcaster Mariella Frostrup, authors Juno Dawson, Kit de Waal and Alexander McCall Smith, and Bradford Festival Literary Director Syima Aslam

Great to see City Of Bohane by Kevin Barry in there, although surprising Weaveworld by Clive Barker didn’t make the cut  #mybooklife
