My top 5 Fiction books

1) The Three Musketeers – Alexandre Dumas
2) The Guns of Navarone – Alistair MacLean
3) The Inimitable Jeeves – PG Wodehouse
4) City Of Djinns – William Dalrymple
5) Atlas Shrugged – Ayn Rand

Apologies if you don’t find Rushdie, Dickens or Hemingway here – one does read them, but one necessarily does not go back there.

A book that made an impression

Hands down, it is PG Wodehouse and his books ! His madcap world of Jeeves and Psmith  continue to delight inspire me with their scintillating wordplay, impeccable wit and impassive attitude to “the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune”… what better life lessons tucked away in the pages of humour & satire.
