Making the List
Back in 2012, The Guardian began a weird competition to determine the great American novelist. They started with a controversial selection of 32 writers, which did not include Mark Twain, Herman Melville, Jim Harrison, Mark Helprin, Edwin O'Connor, Larry McMurtry, Flannery O'Connor, Thomas Wolfe, Tom Wolfe, Harper Lee, Ralph Ellison, Norman Mailer, John O'Hara, Truman Capote or Charles Portis, just to name a few. Aargh.
