FRANCOISE SAGAN NOVELS

“I went on a kick and read everything she wrote,” says Mamet, 24, who plays Shoshanna on HBO’s Girls. “Bonjour Tristesse is fabulous; A Certain Smile is amazing.”

STORIES THAT SWEEP YOU AWAY

“The Lives of a Bengal Lancer by Francis Yeats-Brown really does. It’s about this man’s wild life in India back when it was very grand and traditional.”

READING FOR FUN

The daughter of playwright David Mamet says she and her ditzy Girls alter ego are “literally opposite human beings. I’m sort of a stay-home, read-a-book kind of girl.” On tap right now: Moby Dick.
