Best books: Drew Barrymore

For The Week magazine, the actor Drew Barrymore named her six best books.

One title on her list:
Still Life With Woodpecker by Tom Robbins (Bantam, $14)

This 1980 novel poses the question, by Page 2: “How do you make love stay?” And the psychedelic, fun, and adventurous way in which Tom Robbins goes about the exploration of this question is like a fairy tale for wild adults.
Read about the other five books on Barrymore's list.
