61 essential pomo classic?

What’s a really beaut example of irony?  How about devotees of a philosophy devoted to subjectivism and non-absolutes suggesting there be 61 essential books of postmodernism? Considering the list includes both Hamlet and Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Scarlet Letter however, there might just be an element of tongue in cheek.

Maybe read them in conjunction with Stephen Hicks’s Explaining Postmodernism in order to feel the full effect?
