Ask a Book Question: The Fourth in a Series (What’s in a Name)

Here’s a fun, listy book question based solely on opinion (these are my specialty): titles. As you can tell from the blank subject line above, titles are hard for me. I’ve always admired Hemingway’s titles, and I was just reading East of Eden, when I thought, damn, that’s a good title. Most of Steinbeck’s books have great titles, as do the Mutis novellas. Perhaps you should solicit candidates for the greatest book titles of all time.

I am still in transit throughout the East Coast so I won’t have time to take a crack at this one. Anyone else have favorites? Use the comments link below.
