The Best American Novel? Ever?

Our Adobe CS4 arrived at last, so we’re reinstalling that.

Meanwhile, we asked the local library for a purely subjective answer to the question:

If you had to recommend an American Novel, from any time period, to give to a 15 year old, as an example of good writing (in usage, style, and substance), which would you nominate?

We were thinking maybe something by Mark Twain.

Our local library suggested To Till a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.

With over 200 years of fiction to pick from, there’s just a wealth of choices. And the US is such a young country.  Imagine trying to have to pick just one for Italy, or Britain or China or India!
