An interesting but imposing list. #3 has always been one of my favorite books. Speaking of Jesuits, I was also "Jesuit-educated," and had the great good fortune of being taught by Walter Ong, S.J. Though he died recently, there is a weblog devoted to his memory at
(Another novel use for weblogs, I'd say).

Jerome du Bois

Wonderful list, full of reminders for me.

No Walker Percy. I actually know him more through his work on semiotics and for "Lost in the Cosmos," but his last novel, "The Thanatos Syndrome," is an excellent dramatization of our complacency toward evil.

Also, on #105, Wallace Stegner; I'd like to mention another Stanford student of his, who only had two great books in him, but that's two more than most of us have: Ken Kesey, with "Cuckoo's Nest" and "Sometimes A Great Notion."

I'm just about to begin reading the Ambrose now, by the way.

TPB, Esq.

I'm terribly remiss for forgetting Kesey.
