Four notable books that changed S.J. Watson

S.J. Watson is the author of Before I Go To Sleep and Second Life.

One of four books that changed him, as shared at the Sydney Morning Herald:
The Swimming Pool Library
Alan Hollinghurst

I read this one summer when I'd just moved to London. It was hugely affecting, partly because because I was working in Russell Square and socialising in the bars of Soho, where much of this book takes place. It almost felt as if I was living in the world of the book, or the book was showing me a glimpse of how life could be.
Read about another entry on the list.
