THIS WEEK’S ARCHIVE PICK
by David Handlin
The first of November doesn’t only herald a season of fall leaves, football, and Thanksgiving feasting. It’s also the start of National Novel Writing Month, when writers across the country take to their desks—or coffeeshop tables, couches, and bars—to try to pen a 50,000-word novel by the end of the month. Not feeling the writerly inspiration yet? Take a peek at David Handlin’s roundup of the 100 best American novels. It just might inspire you to write the 101st.
