Books Recommended in Mustich's '1,000 Books to Read Before You Die: A Life-Changing List' D-G

"Encompassing fiction, poetry, science and science-fiction, travel writing, biography, children's books, history, and more, '1000 Books to Read Before You Die' moves across cultures and through time to present an eclectic collection of titles".
Entries are, for the most part, arranged alphabetically by author and at the end of each are: other notable books by the author; further reading (titles that shed additional light on the author's life, or on the subject treated by the main entry); works by other authors to try if they have enjoyed the featured book; adaptations in film, television, play, musical based on or inspired by the subject entry that are worth seeking out.
There are far too many to group all in one list, so this is A-C, with more to follow.
