The novel is full of exquisitely detailed characters who, despite leading unconventional lifestyles within a notorious crime family, experience the triumphs and failures of the human condition. Filled with the requisite valor, love, and rancor of a great epic, The Godfather is the definitive gangster novel.

To Kill a Mockingbird is an American classic, a timeless story of a young girl growing up in a sleepy Southern town and learning the true meaning of human dignity and justice. Scout Finch, daughter of the town lawyer, likes to spend her summers building treehouses, swimming, and catching lightning bugs with her big brother Jem. But one summer, when a black man is accused of raping a white woman, Scout?s carefree days come to an end. In the county courtroom, she will join her father in a desperate battle against ignorance and prejudice. When it first appeared in 1960, this extraordinary novel became an instant best-seller, winning a Pulitzer Prize and triumphant critical success. Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving, To Kill a Mockingbird explores the deepest roots of human behavior?innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred. Harper Lee always considered her book to be a simple story. Today, it is universally hailed as a masterpiece of American literature.

Born in 1871, Marcel Proust was intent on becoming a writer from an early age. For much of his youth Proust led the life of a man-about-town, frequenting fashionable Paris drawing rooms and literary salons, which would form the background of a number of his early stories and sketches, and subsequently Proust's great work, Remembrance of Things Past, the major French literary statement of the 20th century.

Modern classics, Novel
In CITIES OF THE PLAIN (also known as SODOM AND GOMORRAH), Marcel continues his forays into the aristocratic society into which he has finally been admitted, finding satisfaction but a growing disillusionment as well, and is both fascinated and repelled by the world of the flamboyant homosexual Baron de Charlus, and reports on the intricate, hypocritical, and sometimes noble attitudes on the part of his characters toward the Dreyfus case. He also begins the doomed cycle of attraction, jealousy, and suspicion with Albertine that will characterize the next two parts of the novel. And, in CITIES OF THE PLAIN, Swann, one of Proust's pivotal characters, meets his end.
