Poetic Fiction -- Novels in Verse

While celebrating National Poetry Month, you don't have to limit yourself to Dewey Decimal number 811.  There are many works of fiction written in verse.  This usually means two things:
1. The language may be sparse, but it is beautiful and very expressive.
2. With fewer words per page, these books are fast reads.
