Re: New classic literature?

Were I to guess, I'd say:

The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay- 20+ years from now

Oryx and Crake or The Handmaid's Tale- 10+ years from now

Devil In the White City- any time now

That's based on trends I noticed in 3 years at Borders prior to their closing. All of those books were being requested by high school kids based on reading lists assigned.

edit: The Franzen title is also likely.
