Diane Johnson's 6 favorite books

Diane Johnson's new memoir is Flyover Lives.

One of her six favorite books, as shared with The Week magazine:
I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith

The younger daughter of an eccentric, impoverished English family longs for a normal life. Why can't their father break his writer's block? What will they do when the money runs out? Smith makes it all delightfully real and engrossing.
Read about another book on the list.

I Capture the Castle is one of Sophia Bennett's top ten stylish reads.
