Jamie Lee Curtis's six favorite books

Jamie Lee Curtis is an actor and author. Her latest children's book is This Is Me. One entry on her list of six favorite books, as shared at The Week magazine:
King Rat and Shogun by James Clavell

When I was 13, I was stranded on the island of Sardinia with my father, his young wife, their baby son, a nanny, my older sister, and our two younger half-sisters who didn't speak English. I found a copy of King Rat on a bookshelf and it saved me. Historical fiction then became my favorite genre. Shogun was the first book I devoured as an adult.
