There are so many more musical delights I would love to take rather than literature where I would struggle to concentrate:
“ Un Sospiro” by Liszt, some Jazz, Shostakovich and Scot Joplin who wrote some wonderful piano jazz, Dvorak’s “The American” (a fabulous string quartet)
I’m assuming there will be some jungle on this island, so I would plan to take some strong manageable shears to allow me to investigate the delights of my environment!
