Thoughts: Top Five Books To Take When Stuck On Desert Island

Thinking of my favourite books. If I was trapped on a desert island and could only have five books to read or - if things got really rough - eat, they would be...

1) War and Peace
2) In Search of Lost Time
3) East of Eden
4) Spring Snow
5) The Catcher in the Rye

Bonus books I would secretly hide in my pants...

1) In Cold Blood
2) A Prayer for Owen Meany
3) Barney's Version
4) Fifth Business
5) William Shakespeare's Collected Plays

The one book I would happily set on fire to cook the others I will probably have to eat:

Operation Shylock: A Confession (1993) by Philip Roth (...What was he thinking? I wince for you, Philip Roth.)
