EHSAAN NOORANIBooks have left a deep impact: Science fiction and the Holocaust years fascinate me. "Childhood End" and "2001: A Space Odyssey" by Arthur C. Clarke are my all-time favourites. The other book that left an impact was "Auschwitz: A Doctor's Eyewitness Account" by Dr. Miklos Nyiszli. The Czech was a doctor at the Nazi camp and the horrifying story is told through his eyes. Ray Bradbury's "Martian Chronicles" is another favourite. In fact, I started dreaming about all that I'd read. That's the power of his writing.My favourite authors: Besides Clarke, I freak out on all the books by Jack Higgins, Roald Dahl and Clive Cussler. I am an ardent fan of "Commando" comics and have a superb collection - about 300 comics.Current read: Roald Dahl's "The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More". It's about a boy who can communicate with animals. You recommend: Dahl's "My Uncle Oswald." It's simply wild and there are superb twists to the tale. I think one must read Ray Bradbury's "Fahrenheit 241" and "The Something This Way Comes." Then there's "A Prayer For The Dying" by Jack Higgins.If you could have dinner with one writer: It would have to be Arthur C. Clarke. It would be a stimulating conversation. I'll ask him what was the inspiration behind "2001: A Space Odyssey".(THE GUITARIST-MUSIC DIRECTOR SPOKE TO SAVITHA GAUTAM)
