"I know you're going to need a great book to read on the plane, so I thought I'd bring a few choices. I didn't know what mood you'd be in, so I brought all of Shakespeare, 'cause you can't go wrong with the Bard. And I've got...Marilynne Robinson, some Graham Greene, Zadie Smith, a little Proust, Sophie's Choice — it doesn't matter if you've seen the movie. Jane Austen — I mean, come on, Jane Austen — and then there's Moby Dick, Anna Karenina, The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, you know, some classic beach reads."
