An annotated list put out by the LA Times in 2009 that names 61 essentials of post-modernism. Link to original article. Note: there is no ordering so #1, #2 ... #61 has no significance (someone toon meer should remove the numbers and replace with codes used in LA article; keep the original numbering as "(60| code1, code2)" for easier checking).

Note that #36 on the published list is Shelley Jackson's "Skin", which is neither finished nor a book that is in LibraryThing :)
