If you are talking about the old classics, yes, then Tolstoy or Henry James or Flaubert. But among the more modern classics, I would vote for "The Book of Laughter and Forgetting" by Milan Kundera, or "If on a Winter's Night a Traveler" by Italo Calvino, or "The Sot-Weed Factor" by John Barth (which is like having an old classic that is also new).
Sorry if I did too many votes, but I love all three of them.
: Here's a question that always generates a lot of discussion (and a lot of disagreement): what is the greatest novel ever written?
