The Great [$location adjective] Novel, and a lot about women and Greatness

[personal profile] supergee linked to LeGuin vs. "The Great American Novel".

This reminded me that I'd posted about The Great World Novel, and Jo Walton picked the topic up at Tor.com.

A bit I like from Mohsin Hamid:
“Gatsby’s” beauty, “Blood Meridian’s” beauty, “Beloved’s” beauty don’t lie in their capturing something quintessentially American, for there is no such thing.
