<coauthor of the screenplay Stealing Beauty and author of the novel Evening (Knopf, 1998)>
Since I'm assuming others will take along the favorite classics, I would take with me the less-often chosen short stories of Flannery O'Connor, the stories of John O'Hara, and those of Franz Kafka. O'Connor to cover the American South and the questions of grace and morality, which she does with so sharp and unyielding an eye. O'Hara to capture the seedy underside of urban life and suburbia, which he does by tuning his unerring ear to the power and humor of sex. And Kafka, because his sense of the absurd has been such a bright and influential light in twentieth-century literature that he would pretty much cover the rest. His light would be welcome in this next darkness.
