Bill Maher's best books:

In October 2008 The Week ran a best books list from the host of HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher.

One book on his list:
Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad

My all-time favorite, even before Francis Ford Coppola turned it into Apocalypse Now. The ultimate topic, the ultimate metaphor. What great book couldn’t have been called Heart of Darkness?
Read about all six books on Maher's list.

Heart of Darkness has appeared in a few CftAR blog items including Best last lines from novels, Top 10 books about Congo, and Thomas Perry's list.
