During a recent review of the Top 100 Books of All Time I thought there was an Ernest Hemingway exclusion but during a second pass I saw that he did make the list with his novella The Old Man and the Sea. The 2002 list that I’m referring to was from the Norwegian Book Club Top 100 Best Books of All Time. This list included authors from all over the world including many writers who were friends with Hemingway and his Lost Generation group during the 1920’s in Paris. Writers that also made this impressive all times best list included: James Joyce (Ulysses), William Faulkner (Sound and the Fury).
Other top book list that Hemingway’s work has appeared in includes:
- Harvard Book Store Top 100 – #38 Farewell to Arms, #68 For Whom the Bell Tolls, #76 In Our Time
- Modern Library 100 Best Novels – #45 The Sun Also Rises, #74 A Farewell to Arms
- Time Magazine’s Top 100 All Time Novels – #22 The Sun Also Rises
