The Education of Joshua Snyder

I'm currently reading number one on this list compiled by Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI), first published last year — The Fifty Best Books. "Pessimism and nostalgia at the bright dawn of the twentieth century must have seemed bizarre to contemporaries. After a century of war, mass murder, and fanaticism, we know that [the author's] insight was keen indeed."

Interesting that The Autobiography of Malcolm X made both lists.

I remember making note of that interesting fact when the list first came about last year.
