For his bookshop and website One Grand Books, the editor Aaron Hicklin asked people to name the 10 books they’d take with them if they were marooned on a desert island. The next in the series is the actress Drew Barrymore, who stars in “Santa Clarita Diet,” streaming on Netflix now. She shares her list exclusively with T.
“The Four Agreements,” Don Miguel Ruiz
This is a book I found at a very hard time in my life, and it rescued me. It offers succinct and approachable advice about how to behave in life.
“Still Life With Woodpecker,” Tom Robbins
A love story that is filled with poetic analogy. This man speaks in strange and delicious descriptions.
“A Farewell to Arms,” Ernest Hemingway
I defy a women to read this and not cry. It is so romantic, and epic — even when it takes place in one room.
“Endurance,” Alfred Lansing
This taught me that if you lead, you need to take other people’s personalities into account when you guide them. Shackleton is a brilliant hero.
“Franny and Zooey,” J.D. Salinger
This book surprised me. I didn’t see it coming. And yet it wasn’t trying to trick me; it made me feel like a welcome fly on the wall.
“Holidays on Ice,” David Sedaris
If anyone knows what it’s like to be alone on Christmas, I’m sure they will have wished they had this book. It’s a humor guide for what could seem lonely, and it sets you up for joy.
“Women,” Charles Bukowski
Bukowski is my favorite. For me he was always on point.
“Full of Life,” John Fante
This man’s perspective of the journey of pregnancy and birth is an eye opener into the member of the other sex’s perspective.
“Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” Dr. Seuss
Because sometimes you need to be reminded your journey is meaningful in the sweetest way. Hope for all ages.
“All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten,” Robert Fulghum
Even as adults, we need to be forced to go back to basics. This book is nostalgic but makes you think.
