Great Books Based on Other Great Books - Flavorwire

Literature is a never-ending, overlapping, sometimes circular conversation — between writers, between readers, between books themselves. Especially when viewed from a vantage, and despite what Vonnegut said, this fact can make for some fascinating and rewarding reading. After all, what's more interesting than listening in on one genius talking to another? And in story form, no less. There are some novels that are better if you have a little bit of background going in — and sometimes that background is nothing more or less than another great novel. Here are a few books you should pair the way you would a fine wine with an excellent cheese — each enhancing the other and making for a very satisfying evening.
