INTERVIEWS BY AMY ARONSON
When the grand arbiters of American taste announced their picks for the best 100 books of the twentieth century, the results were as predictable as you might expect--the list tipped heavily in the direction of white male authors and the standard canon of Western literature. Well, "Ms." wondered what a few of our favorite women writers might have to say about the works that have fed and inspired them. We asked them to pick three books from the twentieth century that they will carry with them into the twenty-first. Unconventional thinkers all, some stuck to the rules, some flouted them--but each had something surprising to say.
