The perhaps-not-so Magnificent Ambersons

Reading the Modern Library 100--The Magnificent Ambersons

There's much about this that does not appeal. And yet. . . it made the list.  Hmmm.


  1. Steven,

    I haven't read it and really had no intention of reading it, but now my curiosity is aroused.

    I do remember reading one of the "Penrod" books many years ago when I was a child. I think it was called _Penrod and Sam_, but I wouldn't swear to it. I guess I was too young to pick up on the racism at that time, or it was so long ago that I forgot it.

    That's quite a challenge that he has embarked upon. Perhaps if I ever find that my TBR bookcase has an empty shelf or two, I might consider it. One question would be, should I read all of them, or just the ones that I havn't read yet?
