Best Novels of 2015

I read over 50 novels this year and these were the best. None were published in 2015, but that is not 2015’s fault. I will encounter a great 2015 novel soon enough.

Cervantes  Don Quixote (1605-1615)
Dreiser  An American Tragedy (1897)
Lampedusa  The Leopard (1958)
Percy  The Last Gentleman (1966)
Pynchon   Bleeding Edge (2013)
Rendell  A Judgement in Stone (1977)
Bashevis Singer  The Manor (1967)
Stendhal  The Charterhouse of Parma (1839)
