Kate Christensen's list

Kate Christensen’s latest novel, The Great Man, will be published later this month by Doubleday. She contributed "The List" -- six books that she rereads all the time -- to The Week magazine last week.

One of her titles:

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

Every time I read this book I feel the same passionate love for Jane. Under her stalwartly plain exterior beats the hungry, intelligent heart of a true heroine. She is a better person than I’ll ever be. I would trust her with my life.
Read Christensen’s full list.
