Afforded the opportunity to add an additional 25 books to my ranking of the greatest novels of all times, I have undertaken a full-scale review of The Novel [1]00 rather than simply promote the most deserving candidates from the honorable mentions list. Rarely is an author given a “do-over,” and more than ve years after the initial conception of The Novel [1]00, I have been allowed to test my rst choices from my current perspective, while adding another 25 titles to the mix. In making my choice and arranging the ranking, I have been guided, as with the original edition of The Novel [1]00, by a self-imposed selection criteria to try to identify the novels that have exerted the strongest impact, that have changed or altered the form in signi cant ways, and, based on critical con- sensus and the test of time, that continue to deliver importance, relevance, and enjoyment years, decades, or centuries after publication. Among the new entries selected, nine are additional works by novelists already represented—Austen, Defoe, Dickens, Eliot, Faulkner, Lawrence, Nabokov, Stendhal, and Woolf—that have allowed me to increase consider- ation of the range and achievement of these superb writers. The remaining 6 novels represent works published between 73 (Manon Lescaut by Abbé Prévost) and 997 (American Pastoral by Philip Roth) and originate from 2 different countries—Austria, Brazil, Britain, Canada, China, Czechoslova- kia, France, India, Japan, Russia, Trinidad, and the United States. All of the novels selected are more than able to withstand a comparison with the great- est of the form, and I hope, by including them in the ranking, I have given readers a chance to reencounter old favorites and possibly make some new acquaintances as well. As to the ranking, I will let the changes I have made stand on their own without speci c comment, only to say that any such ranking is of course sub- jective and unstable over time. To the great chagrin of my students, I often comment that you need to reread the greatest works of literature perhaps every ve years, not because they change but because you do. Since rst mak- ing my choices and rankings for The Novel [1]00 six years ago, I have become, x THE NOVEL 00 if not a better reader, at least a different one, and my decisions re ect that (for better or worse). The ranking of greatest novels of all time may appear to some as misguided and foolish in the extreme—too much subjectivity masquerading as objective truth—but it has been done primarily to provoke consideration and comparison of literary greatness to further appreciate the achievement that is on display in these 25 novels.

Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best novels of all time Published in 1975, Ragtime changed our very concept of what a novel could be. An extraordinary tapestry, Ragtime captures the spirit of America in the era between the turn of the century and the First World War. The story opens in 1906 in New Rochelle, New York, at the home of an affluent American family. One lazy Sunday afternoon, the famous escape artist Harry Houdini swerves his car into a telephone pole outside their house. And almost magically, the line between fantasy and historical fact, between real and imaginary characters, disappears. Henry Ford, Emma Goldman, J. P. Morgan, Evelyn Nesbit, Sigmund Freud, and Emiliano Zapata slip in and out of the tale, crossing paths with Doctorow's imagined family and other fictional characters, including an immigrant peddler and a ragtime musician from Harlem whose insistence on a point of justice drives him to revolutionary violence.
