More to the point would be WHY on earth her books would show up on any list of must read books.

Neither her style nor her ideology/politics warrant much attention beyond maybe something for a high school debating team project. (Hence look who she is popular with.)

Take those two books by her off and add:

Against The Day - Thomas Pynchon

Infinite Jest - David Foster Wallace

And then take off something else and add

The Overstory by Ricahrd Powers.

You're welcome. :-)
