A Week Already??
"What, in your opinion, is the (mythical) Great American Novel? At least to date. A “classic,” or a current one–either would be fine. Mark Twain? J.D. Salinger? F. Scott Fitzgerald? Stephen King? Laura Ingalls Wilder?
It doesn’t have to be your favorite book, mind you. “Citizen Kane” may be the “best” film, and I concede its merits, but it’s not my favorite. You don’t have to love something to know that it’s good."
My vote goes to James Michener's Hawaii - I think it's a classic and it's a book I've enjoyed enough to read at least three times starting with final exam week my senior year of high school. I'm in the northern Metro Detroit area of Michigan, not too far from where the corn fields start.
