Every so often, somebody asks me what my favorite book is. It’s this one.
Three Men In A Boat is my go-to book to read when I’m really blue. When I’m simply blue, I read a Terry Pratchett book and it amuses me and cheers me up. When I’m by God depressed, I read Titus Groan and Gormenghast by Mervyn Peake; they engulf me and both mirror and absorb the depression — sort of a literary re-uptake inhibitor. But when I’m middling blue, I read Three Men In A Boat. I read it a lot. It’s silly, serious, poetic, slapstick, informative, and utterly satisfying.
This election season, I’m waffling between Three Men In A Boat and Titus Groan.
But, you. Read Three Men In A Boat.
