Random House Modern Library's "100 Best Books of the 20th Century: Fiction (Board's List)"

121 books on the list — 6 years ago

If you count each book, there are more than 100, because of trilogies, sets, etc. Each of the following books were published separately, so I count them as individual books, even though they are lumped together on the list:

U.S.A = a trilogy.

The Studs Lonigan Triology = same

The Alexandria Quartet = four separate novels.

A Dance to the Music of Time = 12 separate novels, originally published separately, now published in four volumes of three each.

Parade’s End = four novels, originally published separately.

So even though they call it the Top 100 list, there are really 121 books on it.
