I was pleased to see that Louie CK admires Jack Kerouac’s The Dharma Bums. This list was compiled before Robin Williams died and he endorsed Isaac Asimov’s Foundation trilogy, another work that I have loved.
Janet Asimov makes the argument:
“Never assume that you must have a big block of uninterrupted time for writing. The motto for writers should be carpe diem—seize the day. Or the morning or the time sitting on the john or while stirring the stew, or whatever.”
