Simple Pleasures


Classic novels — especially the favourites that you find yourself returning to again and again, like old friends. I love revisiting Persuasion by Jane Austen about once a year — what novel do you reread regularly?

I re-read Vanity Fair all the time. I love it! Becky is just so balls out it's not even funny. I also love to read David Copperfield over and over. I love David's life, from his horrible step-father to his marriage to beloved Dora, to his second, more fulfilling marriage.

Ah love the Bronte sisters...I've just finished Wuthering Heights a couple of days ago!
Love very much Vladimir Nabokov too, and can read Anne Rice's Interview with the vampire every summer vacation :-)

Persuasion is probably my all-time favourite. I read it every year. It's an old friend.

Several...but the one I have in hand today is "The Quiet American." Next up, Gatsby. Those two especially. (Persuasion, also:)

Each summer; it's E.M. Forster's A Room With a View and Maurice.
