Joyce's Ulysses, Woolf's Jacob's Room, Eliot's The Waste Land, Fitzgerald's The Beautiful and Damned, Williams' The Velveteen Rabbit... 1922 has been called the annus mirabilis (“miracle year”) of literary modernism and was a turning point in English literature that spawned a flood of influential works still in heavy circulation today.
To mark this centenary, we're taking a fresh look at the past 100 years of literature, drawing up a list of the 100 most influential books - all genres, fiction or non-fiction, old or new, are welcome - and we'd like your help!
Anyone can submit - readers, writers, teachers, and publishers from all around the world. And everyone who nominates a book will be entered into a prize draw to win a bundle of the selected titles.
Our selections will be revealed on the eve of Hay Festival in Wales this spring (26 May–5 June), where they'll be shared and celebrated.
