Oldest / Earliest to the Desert Island

OK – final thoughts.  If I had to take one – and ONLY ONE – of the oldest/earliest works I’ve read to date, cited in the previous two posts, to a desert island, a stand-in, if you will, for Tom Hank’s volleyball, what would they be?


Tough, tough, tough, for a whole host of reasons.

How about …

Nonfiction – Imitation of Christ (with the Old Testament a close second)

Fiction – The Hunchback of Notre Dame (with Moby Dick right on its heels)

There.  I said it.

But these choices could change for any given shipwreck.
