Annie Baker's 6 favorite books

Annie Baker is a Pulitzer Prize-winning American playwright.

One of her six favorite books, as shared at The Week magazine:
To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf

Woolf's sentences are so beautiful in this novel that they made me give up writing prose forever. She can articulate a train of thought and the poetry of thinking better than anyone else.
