Ringworld
Larry Niven
his future histories were in Worlds of If and other magazines when I was a teen. I wonder if he wants to rewrite the older stories to correct things we have learned since

Confessions
Saint Augustine
St Augustine knew himself, something we all struggle to do. I am not religious although I was raised Roman Catholic by an Italian American mother(1st generation) and a convert father.

Gargantua and Pantagruel
François Rabelais
I read it as a freshman in college in 1969. at that age it was a revelation that people had a sense of humor so long ago
