My mistresses are small rectangular objects with black and white letters scattered over their pages. I run to them when I want to be unfaithful…

Since this blog is called literature lust, I thought I should list the books that I lust after. They are, in no particular order….

The Alexandria Quartet – Lawrence Durrell
The Magus – John Fowles
Absalom Absalom – William Faulkner
Daniel Martin – John Fowles
Jude The Obscure – Thomas Hardy
The Ambassadors – Henry James
Paris Trance – Geoff Dyer
The Cairo Trilogy – Naguib Mahfouz
The Sound And The Fury – William Faulkner
The Book Of Laughter And Forgetting – Milan Kundera
A History Of The English Speaking Peoples – Winston Churchill
The Ginger Man – J.P. Donleavy
David Copperfield – Charles Dickens
Midnight’s Children – Salman Rushdie
The Complete Sherlock Holmes – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

…there are many more, but life can accommodate only so many lusts at one time.
