Yesterday I went into our little independent bookstore to find Ken Kesey's ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST. I searched in vain through fiction, finally redirected to the Classics section. Ken Kesey, a writer of a not-so-past generation, is now a classic? So what makes a classic a classic? Familiarity, timelessness, critically reviewed greatness, long-term sales, appearances in educational curriculum (a fun plural would be "curriculi")...what makes something a classic on your book shelf?
