My desert island shelf contains all my favorite books which I have encountered since I began reading decades ago. I would want these books if I could have no others.

Joyce is protein for the brain, yoga for the mind. He makes you work, but the rewards are endless. He once wrote to a friend as he finished Finnegan's Wake, "I've got enough stuff in there to keep the professors busy until the turn of the century." He was right. --JJM, 10/10/05
