What's the worst novel of the decade?

Tartt Friend of the blog and sometime-force of evil Chauncey Mabe has posed this intriguing question over at his blog on the Florida Center for the Literary Arts website.

His choices include Ian McEwan's Saturday - a choice with which I heartily disagree. There are so many books that are so much worse. Say, for example, Donna Tartt's The Little Friend; John Irving's Until I Find You and Thomas Harris' Hannibal Rising. Yes, The Lost Symbol deserves to be mentioned, too, but I've taken so many shots at it I feel vaguely guilty about invoking its awfulness yet again.
