Those guys are big on Nabokov, welsh. I also see Gilgamesh and Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching It's kind of stupid to list stuff like "Shakespeare's collected works" or "Chekhov's short stories" or "Borges' collected fictions". They may be great pieces of prose, but bundled together and read is not how the author intended them and thus not really how they should be judged. It's just a cheap way of getting Shakespeare in there. It's funny how non-Russian lists never put Crime and Punishment very high, even though (in Russia and Europe) it is considered to be the best work of Dostoevskij in a pure literary context.
