Remote Island: Five Novels
You are stranded on a remote island. Although there is sufficient food and water, it is unlikely that you will be rescued soon. Fortunately, the one trunk that floated ashore contains five novels that could keep you well entertained for decades.
What are they?
[My choices would be: War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy; Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray; Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry; The Balkan Trilogy by Olivia Manning; and A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.]
