Sebastian Faulks will host Watersone’s first Writer’s Table during which he will compile a list of 40 books that influenced him as a writer according to theBookseller. The list will include children’s books, poetry, non-fiction, and modern bestsellers.
“Quite a few of the books I would have liked on my table are, alas, out of print; but I hope that everyone will find something worthwhile to read or re-read in this list of forty. There are no duds here, only winners.”
Selected books will be highlighted on Waterstone’s website and store beginning on 1 May. Faulks will also write about why he selected each book in the list.
Faulks’ James Bond novel, Devil May Care, will be published worldwide on 28 May 2008.
