Ok here we go with the old stranded on a deserted island chestnut.
Now suppose you were stranded on a deserted island (not “desert island” as so many improperly say), and you could only bring three books with you, all fiction, all novels. Which do you choose?
- Herman Melville, Moby Dick (1851)
- James Joyce, Ulysses (1922)
- Thomas Pynchon, Gravity’s Rainbow (1973)
Now have at it, mavens.
