Eve has a great, great list of book suggestions for kids, which got me thinking. I'm currently trying to reorganize our books (the combined holdings of two bibliophiles can easily fill a basement, and they do), and I'm running across a lot of great "Catholic" novels that I'd forgotten I had (in addition to the "Catholic" novels that I knew I had and that fill up two shelves in my study) - the Don Camillo books, the Edge of Sadness, and so on. Leaving aside the well-known figures like O'Connor, Percy, Waugh and so on...what were the works of "Catholic" or even just general "religious" fiction, popular or literary, of the 20th century that you really liked and you'd recommend others to read?
