There are certain authors that strike a chord with me. Their works have probably formed my world view as much as anything, other than my faith. Strangely, only three from this list are Americans. Is that because I am drawn to things other than what I already know? Perhaps that sort of sedentary wanderlust has informed my taste in literature, but regardless, I would be perfectly happy with works from any of these authors on my desert island.
C. S. Lewis
Great selection. I’m not as crazy about Hemingway as you are and have never read Kundera (Unbearable Lightness of Being), but the others would make my list as well. I’m enjoying you blog.
