What a wonderful list. I'm planning to read A Little Life in the next couple of months as well (I want to finish another very long read first, Marlon James' A Brief History of Seven Killings). Do you already know which of Elizabeth Taylor's books you want to read, or are you just going to choose according to availability or according to your mood?
