Okay, so I'm really really close to finishing my novel, and have decided to drop the Dalmation island WWII back story I had going on. This will bring the book in at around 200pp. Pretty short, huh. I was a little bit worried about this, and then I found this site, to which I'm very grateful. Okay, so only a few books under the general fiction list were published this century, but I won't let that deter me. I like reading short novels, and it appears I also can't write anything that isn't one. Maybe I should look for a French publisher rather than a British one? They don't seem to have a problem with little books, and my novel would probably come out longer in French.
Help ease my pain, tell me your favourite novels of around 200pp, better still if the author's not been dead for more than twenty years or so.
