The Guardian's 1000 Books Everyone Must Read: 1-149, Comedy
This list is from 2009 but I can’t resist reproducing it here. Selected by the Guardian’s review team and a panel of experts, the list includes only novels and is divided into seven sections: comedy, crime, family and self, love, science fiction & fantasy, state of the nation, and war & travel. These are the comedy selections.
The other sections of the list will follow. Please do not add or remove anything.
