objectivecorrelative asked: Dear sad, neglected McNally Jackson tumblr, If you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring one book, what would it be? (Let’s assume that Moby-Dick is already there.)
That’s really hard. Maybe The Secret Lives of People Escaping from Desert Islands, Or, How To Build Fires and Rafts: Building Your Stranded Brand. Er, without Moby-Dick, suddenly my answers become a lot boringer (Shakespeare, or something?). To dodge the question, I am actually stranding myself on an island this week, but only for a few days. Here are the books I’m bringing:
If that’s hard to see, it’s Charles Portis’ True Grit, Deb Olin Unferth’s Revolution, Andre Dubus’ Dancing After Hours, and James Franco. The James Franco, for the record, is homework.
Anyway, unless I decide to do some serious busblogging, for the next few days the tumblr will be quiet—please don’t anyone talk about books while I’m gone—and I will be wishing I were reading Moby-Dick.
