1) Tender is the Night by F Scott Fitzgerald. For the broad historical sweep of the story and the fallibility of man. 2) The Crow Road by Ian Banks. A rite of passage redemption novel with the best sex-scene ever. 3) The Hitch-Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams. Still makes me laugh despite dozens of readings. More imagination in one small book than in most author's entire oeuvres. 4) What a Carve Up by Jonathan Coe. Brit-centric I'll admit, but a hilarious satire of the worst of Thatcherism. 5) The 39 Steps by John Buchan. The original teenage escapism. And as an added bonus pretty much anything by PG Wodehouse. Perfect bed-time reading.
