Nominate MobileRead's 10 best fiction books of the 20th Century

The best books of the 21st century thread made me think that a MobileRead list of the ten best books of the 20th century would be fun.

To avoid, as much as possible, recentness bias, let's go for the best book of each decade of the 20th century. That is books first published:

1901-1910, 1911-1920, 1921-1930, 1931-1940, 1941-1950, 1951-1960, 1961-1970, 1971-1980, 1981-1990, 1991-2000

So this is the nomination thread. Please post your nominations for the best book of each decade of the 20th century. If you don't have a nomination for a particular decade that's fine. Please identify the decade for every nomination. No more than one nomination per decade per person.

Please only nominate books that you have actually read: don't nominate based on reviews, TV programmes or films.


After there have been sufficient nominations, I'll make a voting thread, either one thread per decade (if there are LOTS of nominations) or one thread for the whole 20th century.

Let's see what books the collective wisdom of Mobileread thinks were the best of the 20th century!

[EDIT: Please keep this thread just for nominations. You'll be able to discuss the nominations in the voting threads.]

[EDIT2: Title changed to clarify that this is for a list of fiction, not non-fiction]

[EDIT3: Nominations will be open until the end of April, or until a full 7 days have passed since the last nomination, whichever comes SOONER.]

[EDIT4: Consolidated list:]
Here's the list I have of nominations and first nominator. Please check it to make sure your nominations are in here and in the right decade! Voting threads go up starting next weekend.

Five nominations, and already it looks like the collective wisdom of MobileRead is blind to books published in other languages than English.

My nomination:

Am I the only one who thinks the decades should be listed as 1900-1909, 1910-1919, 1920-1929, etc.? Don't most people think of the decades that way--e.g., the sixties are 1960-1969, not 1961-1970.
