Yay, you made your list too! I see we share some favorites :)
I'll have to read your Q entry. I missed Q & X.

Yeah, I loved _A Very Long Engagement_- probably one of my top 10 reads of the last few years, and I just read _Like Water for Chocolate_ a few weeks ago. Really liked it. Raymonde Queneau was the only Q in my library!
