Many thanks to Stephen Jarvis, who unearthed an interesting contribution from Roald Dahl in 1983’s The Book of Lists 3. It’s Dahl’s list of “5 Books to Take to a New Planet.” (I’ve added it to the site under Essays and Articles.) I’m amused to see that 2 of them aren’t actually books, but rather pieces of music! I think that’s cheating, Roald. 🙂
Thanks for sharing, Stephen!
