Molly Ringwald's six favorite books

Molly Ringwald's movies include The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles. Her debut novel, When It Happens To You, is now out from It Books/HarperCollins.

One of Ringwald's six favorite books, as told to The Week magazine:
Mating by Norman Rush

Rush, who spent time in Botswana with the Peace Corps, used that experience to craft this National Book Award winner about a female anthropologist who treks through the Kalahari Desert and falls for the visionary founder of a secret utopia. Mating is both a brilliant novel of ideas and a stunning story of what happens when love becomes tangled with obsession.
Read about the other books on Ringwald's list.
