Christy Turlington's favorite books:

  1. The Sound and the Fury

    (literature and fiction, classics)

    "This novel was completely ahead of its time and Faulkner is surely one of the greatest American writers. What I love about it is the way he tells a family story from each person's perspective within a historical context. The prose throughout is poetic yet unstructured."

  2. The Sun Also Rises

    "This novel transports me each time I read it, to a time and a place that is so much simpler than my own. I fell in love with Hemingway's idea of Spain through these characters' experiences, especially Brett's, the book's heroine, who is such an autonomous spirit."

  3. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

    "Coming from a family of sisters and the second-born, I always identified with Elizabeth Bennet. The plight of women and our historically limited freedoms make Austen's spirited characters all the more intriguing and inspiring."
