10 for the 90's

The last two weeks I've been enjoying Lit Hub's series devoted to the 10 Books that defined each decade of the 20th century.  

Thinking ahead to Friday's list for the 1990's I decided that was the only decade I would make a serious guess at, as it was the only 20th century decade in which it was likely that I had read (or at least could have read) the books listed.  So, here's my prediction for their 10.

The Things They Carried, 1990

The Firm, 1991

Angels in America, 1992

Parable of the Sower, 1993

Left Behind, 1995

Infinite Jest, 1996

A Game of Thrones, 1996

American Pastoral, 1997 (now, they already picked Portnoy's Complaint and their rule is not to pick an author twice (a rule they've already broken) but you can't define the literary 90's without a Roth novel.)

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, 1998

The Starr Report, 1998
