The books I wish I had written-

Standard

War and Peace, Leo Tolstoy-when I re read it, I measure my human growth by what I now fully understand.

Catch 22-Joseph Heller’s masterpiece.Brilliant, zany, a tour de force- and a stunning indictment of war and warmongers.
Persuasion, Jane Austen-the sensitive, nuanced relationship between the central characters-the cramping social obligations which damage, but can’t destroy, true feelings.
Gorky Park,Martin Cruz Smith-which introduced me to 6 thrillers starring the only honest man in the former Soviet system-Arkady Renko, indomitable- inflexibly honest-inventively smart- a rare being.
Through Western Eyes- Joseph Conrad-what a writer! Depth upon depth of insight into a doomed regime.

A few favourites- I’d love to hear from others,image002 do share “books which matter to you-“
