People often ask me to name my top five favourite books of all time. The trouble is, these are choices that can change from day to day. They can change in the course of one single day. I created this group to take account of this ever evolving selection. People are welcome to post and repost their top five lists as their choices change.

So here goes with my first list:

My Top Five Books today are:
Anne Tyler - Searching for Caleb
Because of the profound sadness not just of losing someone but of finding them again.
Thomas Hardy - The Return of the Native
A novel that deals as so many of Hardy's novels do with the huge consequences that can be derived from seemingly insignificant acts.
Bill Bryson - A Short History of Nearly Everything
Simply the best rough guide to science I have ever read.
The God of Small Things - Arundhati Roy
Someone asked to borrow this recently, and I had to refuse. I cannot allow it out of my proximity.
Evelyn Waugh - A Handful of Dust
A book that flickers onto my radar every now and again, and when it does, it catches at something deep within.
