I love reading, studied English Language and Literature at University, but have somehow managed to escape almost the entire American literary canon. Not interested in anything post-1950 (at the moment), but would really appreciate some recommendations, and brief synopses if possible, of your favourite American classic novels, 19th century onwards.
Thanks in advance smile

I have just had an Ira Levin fest - The Stepford Wives, A Kiss Before Dying and Rosemary's Baby.
