List withdrawal

We haven't had a list in a while, so here's my top five favourite books. I just read a great one (#3), and thus I am excited to update my list (again, in no particular order):

1. The World According to Garp - John Irving
2. Barney's Version - Mordecai Richler
3. Oryx and Crake - Margaret Atwood
4. The Diviners - Margaret Laurence
5. A Complicated Kindness - Miriam Toews

It is overloaded with Canadian authors, you may have noticed, but can I help it that we breed such great writers?

A month later, I just wanted to share my excitement at the fact that someone else likes the Diviners! Everyone I know had to read Margaret Laurence in high school and refuses to entertain the thought of her as a good writer- definitely on my 'list' of favourite authors!
