My Fourth Desert Island Book: O God, I could be bounded in a nutshell and count myself a king of infinite space, if I had this one book to take with me. This is a bit of a cheat for a desert island book list, containing multitudes as it does, but what can I say: I LOVE Shakespeare, the way his language unpacks into volumes, the variety of his plots and styles and feelings: one brilliant man's life's work all compiled into one handy volume. Hours and hours of reading aloud pleasure. A bottomless treasure trove… If you've been turned off Shakespeare, he deserves a second chance, and a third, and a fourth, and a twentieth. He'll wait.
