Jonathan Hyde's six best books

Jonathan Hyde is an Australian actor known for film roles Titanic, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, Anaconda, Jumanji, The Mummy, and as Eldritch Palmer in the FX TV series The Strain. One of his six best books, as shared at the Daily Express:
CROSSING to SAFETY by Wallace Stegner

I found this jotted down in my Filofax last year so got a copy. It’s the story of two academic couples, one couple privileged and the other struggling. They all have crosses to bear at some point and I found their stoicism remarkable. It made me weep.
Read about another entry on the list.

Crossing to Safety is among J. Courtney Sullivan's six favorite books about marriage, Simon Winchester's five top novels on U.S. frontier social history, and Lan Samantha Chang's five best list of novels on friendship.
