Just curious

Posted to What Are You Reading?

Can we say that Fitzagerald is "great" yet? Hemmingway? I'm not arguing one side or the other. I've always been compelled to read according to my fancy but do give creedence to names I hear greatness associated with again and again. I've always been curious about this. Does 10 or 15 yers make a difference? What is the cutoff point for greatness?
