The first novel that messed me up. I’ve read it so many times—first in my late teens, when I was in my full horror fan mode. In Ireland, where I lived, there was no such thing as a streetlight, so you looked outside and your own imagination would decide what was there. But there was something about the descriptions of the Bramford, the apartment that Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse move into, that was my first descriptive explanation of New York living. Way before I saw the movie, the story leapt off the page.
Vincent Bugliosi with Curt Gentry
Unfortunately, it went from horror to true crime, kicked off by “Helter Skelter,” the very famous book about the Manson murders. I got into true crime way too young, way too early.
The Sun Also Rises
A book I read at least once a year. I took American studies as part of my degree, and found Hemingway a little late, but “The Sun Also Rises” is the ultimate of the modernist school. I’m not sure why I read it so often, but much has to do with the huge love affair at the heart of it—and the setting, between the wars, within the world of this lost generation of expats. It just completely transports me from wherever I am to Paris and Pamplona. And his writing has such hidden depths—every time I read it I find something new. It takes a lost soul to convey so much.
