Ali Smith's literary top ten

Ali Smith is the latest writer to offer up a literary top ten at Pulp Net.

Two entries from her list:
My favourite novel that no one else seems to have heard of:

Two Serious Ladies by Jane Bowles. I don’t understand why Bowles’s writing isn’t better known. She’s brilliant.

Deceased author I’d most like to watch crossing a room, just to see how she moves:

Jane Austen
Read about Smith's "favourite opening line of a novel."
