A famous book you haven't read

Humiliation, the game is called. And that's what it inflicts. You have to confess to a famous book you haven't read - and there's no opportunity for sly self-congratulation.
You can't just plead that, gosh, though you simply ADORE Perec you blush to admit you only got halfway through La Disparation in the original French
During this year's Ways With Words festival at Dartington Hall, Devon, we would collar our guests and ask: what's the book you're most ashamed of never having read?
