Great Books of the 20th Century (Easton Press)
"It was the century of Hemingway, Steinbeck and Faulkner – American authors of worldwide fame. It was also the era of Orwell, Solzhenitsyn, pasternak, and Kafka – of the greatest international writers and storytellers who ever lived.
The 20th century was a time of upheaval and world wars – of The grapes of wrath and Catch-22. It was a time of decadence, of growth and change – of The Great Gatsby, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Nineteen Eighty-Four.
These are the stories, the experiences, the novels, that tell us who we are, what is important to us. They show us what we have done and learned, and predict where we might go in the years ahead.
This collection includes fifty of the 20th century’s literary masterpieces, chosen by the Editorial Advisory Board of Easton Press."
