Is this a good title? (1 Viewer)

We all know how important a good title can be to the success of a book. Given that, I'd love to hear what some of your favorite titles are--regardless of what you thought of the work itself.

I'll start off with five:

"The Name of the Rose," by Umberto Eco
"If on a Winter's Night a Stranger," written by Italo Calvino
John McPhee's "Annals of the Former World"
"Portnoy's Complaint," Philip Roth
"Atlas Shrugged," by Ayn Rand

Anyone else?

Young Hearts Crying, Richard Yates
Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha, Roddy Doyle
Go Tell It On The Mountain, James Baldwin

I would also like to exclude any Stephen King title ever. He really does have a bad ear for them. :puker:
