Sometimes we need to turn back to the Classics. What vintage read would you recommend?
The Rainbow by D.H. Lawrence
Riddle of the Sands by Erskine Childers, the granddad of spy novels, written in 1903.
La Princess de Cleves (1678) - Madame de La Fayette One of the first modern novels to emerge in France. A well-told tale; I admit I tookfrequent recourse to Terrence Cave's translation to understand somedifficult phrases and sentences in 17th century French.
