It’s not easy to choose only five books, so I made up my mind and decided to mention the five I can’t help reading again, once in a while, because they are still here for me today. Every time I read them I find something I hadn’t discovered before—or maybe I had forgotten—so that the book is always the same, and yet always different, as well. Only literature can do that for me.
- Death on the Installment Plan, Louis-Ferdinand Céline
- The Ravishing of Lol Stein, Marguerite Duras
- My Friends, Emmanuel Bove
- A Hard Winter, Raymond Queneau
- A Man’s Place, Annie Ernaux
