F. Scott Fitzgerald's Recommended Reading List

I consider myself widely-read, but I only score with "War and Peace" on this list.

At London's Daily Mail, "The 22 books everyone should read… according to F. Scott Fitzgerald: List of novels he dictated to nurse is revealed."
Sister Carrie: Theodore Dreiser
The Life of Jesus: Ernest Renan
A Doll’s House: Henrik Ibsen
Winesburg, Ohio: Sherwood Anderson
The Old Wives’ Tale: Arnold Bennett
The Maltese Falcon: Dashiel Hammett
The Red and the Black: Stendahl
The Short Stories of Guy De Maupassant
An Outline of Abnormal Psychology: edited by Gardner Murphy
The Stories of Anton Chekhov
The Best American Humorous Short Stories
Victory: Joseph Conrad
The Revolt of the Angels: Anatole France
The Plays of Oscar Wilde
Sanctuary: William Faulkner
Within a Budding Grove: Marcel Proust
The Guermantes Way: Marcel Proust
Swann’s Way: Marcel Proust
South Wind: Norman Douglas
The Garden Party: Katherine Mansfield
War and Peace: Leo Tolstoy
John Keats and Percy Bysshe Shelley: Complete Poetical Works
I do have Conrad, Dreiser, Faulkner, and Stendhal on my paperback bookshelf, so perhaps I can get back up to speed on my classical reading?

We'll see...
