Rachel Cusk's six favorite books

Rachel Cusk is the author of three memoirs and eight novels. One of her six favorite books, as shared at The Week magazine:
The Rainbow by D.H. Lawrence

This is a book all women should read, to find out how we became what we are in the modern world; ditto all English people. Lawrence is the great analyst of transformation and change and self-realization, and this novel — about three generations of an English family — leaves readers with the skills to continue that analysis in their own living of life.
Read about the other entries on the list.

Ursula Brangwen, who features both in The Rainbow (1915) and Women in Love (1920), is among Judith Mackrell's five young fictional heroines in top coming-of-age novels.
