Chris Ware's six favorite books

Chris Ware's new book is Monograph.

One of his six favorite books, as shared at The Week magazine:
Family Happiness by Leo Tolstoy

Humanity's greatest author, famous for his symphonic War and Peace, also composed some of fiction's most practical chamber pieces. Family Happiness, which traces the blooming of young passion through giddy marriage to mature togetherness, is the story I most recommend to 20-somethings. It illuminates what's really happening when that first spark of infatuation begins to wane. Or, in Tolstoy's words, "Each time of life has its own kind of love."
Read about another entry on the list.
