Gene Wilder's all-time favorite books

Gene Wilder starred in several modern classic movies, including Young Frankenstein and Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. In 2005 he published a memoir, Kiss Me Like a Stranger: My Search for Love and Art, and shared his favorite books in the pages of The Week magazine. One title on the list:
Dear Theo: The Autobiography of Vincent Van Gogh, edited by Irving Stone

The letters of my favorite painter to his younger brother Theo. Van Gogh gives an insight into his creative process, which I found fascinating. I carried this book with me for many years and it always gave me courage when I was depressed.
Read about the other books on the list.
