Catch22
If I'm in a depressive state, Jude the Obscure
For sheer joyfulness, the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
Cider with Rosie.

But king of them all because I have a nasty unsettling feeling it's about me - the Ginger Man. Read it every year since I was 18, and it gets better, and more unsettling, every time. Donleavy is still alive. I'd like to meet him but I'd prlobbly just gibber.

You might mail him. I have a friend who carried on a several-year-long regular correspondence with the great British author John Fowles, simply because he screwed up the courage to write to him.

Generally, generalizations
are always false.

The books I love I reread.  I've read The Bible numerous times, and it stands alone.

In fiction Dune is my favorite but I've also read Lord of the Rings, and Ender's Game more times than I remember.  I've also read Wuthering Heights three times.

When it comes to non-fiction, the most important spiritual non-fiction I have read was A Tale of Three Kings and the best leadership book was Good to Great.

I don't think Ron wrote to praise Fowles but rather ask some questions about his specific choices in writing a couple of his books. He always thought Fowles was charmed by the fact he wasn't gushing praise. Could be, could be.

Quite honestly, I have never read Fowles. ...Probably an omission I'll have to get around to correcting someday.
