The 1950 bestseller list includes several novels that you will enjoy as you read them, but few that you will remember well enough to recall the story a month later.
My top picks from the year are:
The Cardinal by Henry Morton Robinson
The Wall by John Hersey
Joy Street by Frances Parkinson Keyes
Jubilee Trail by Gwen Bristow
The Disenchanted by Budd Schulberg
Not one of these is great literature, but they are good entertainment with a dollop of originality.
