10 Books That Don't Get Enough Respect

Via Prof. Reynolds, Brian Francis Slattery's "ten books that don't get enough respect."

And the only one that I have read is Little, Big, because I have been a John Crowley fan since high school.

Some of the others looks interesting. Nostromo is in the class of "always heard of it but never read it."

I read (and loved) Crowley's "Beasts" twenty years ago, but couldn't get through "Little, Big" then; perhaps it's time to try him again!

The one that jumped out at me was Conrad's Nostromo, which I will probably get and read now. But I haven't read any of them!

Little, Big is the only one I have read. Nostromo is the only other one that I have heard of. I have read some other Joseph Conrad, though.

I have read the Quammen. But Beasts is Crowley's best-- human - lion chimeras, Peregrine falcons, intelligent dogs, and more.
