Quote
1 If you were stranded on a desert island, which four things would you need to survive? “I’d take a good book – Dante’s Divine Comedy, because you can never plumb the depths of that. I would also take a mask and snorkel so I could check out the fish, because I love wildlife. And I’d take my laptop, so I could surf the ‘net to find a way to get off the damned island! I could write my novel then as well – and decide what the meaning of life is.”
2 On asked who he would invite to a dinner party he answered: “I’d have to have Jesus Christ there – I’d like to check him out. I’d also have to have [the Italian revolutionary] Garibaldi, because he’s a hero of mine, and I’d invite Shakespeare and King Henry V.”
