At the moment the BBC is conducting a poll to find the best 100 novels.
It is similar to the thing they had last year to find the Greatest Ever Briton..they are going to cut it down to the best 10 books eventually, and then, after showing a documentary on the top ten, have a vote for the best of all.
Thyis will take place over a few months, but the first stage in the process is on now, to find the best 100.
you can vote on the website until April 19th (www.bbc.co.uk/bigread).
I was wondering what book we could all vote on to ensure a good gay representation. (In the spirit of that poll earlier on which made "A nation Once Again" Britain's best loved song!)
Obviously the best strategy would be to vote for a book which is popular generally, and will get votes anyway.
I was thinking about it and the two that came to MY mind, at least, were "Tales of the City" by Armistead Maupin, and "A Boy's own Storey" by Edmund White.
Does anybody else have any suggestions?
