Pierre Choderlos De Laclos is number 8

If you like literary jokes, here's one. The hundred greatest novels of all time, includes Paul Auster and no Dickens? Pierre Choderlos De Laclos at number 8??? And this guy is from Britain!! What planet? Maybe it's a parody; it's definitely a joke.

[My apologies; presence of Dickens overshadowed by my umbrage. Thanks to bandiera for pointing out my error. RB (Dickens at #16?? Moby Dick at #21?? It's an outrage!!)]
