About my libraryMy library is a little sad for someone who writes for a living. I'm more given to reading the same books over several times in hopes of understanding how someone did what they did than I'm given to reading many books once. I'm not sure I'm proud of that, or that it's effective, but it's what I do. Examples are In Cold Blood, The Soccer War, Where I'm Calling From, and Blood Meridian. I love short stories and magazine-length journalism. Most weeks I try to take the latest New Yorker on a dinner date and read as much of it as I can. I also read the paper each morning, normally the New York Times. Beyond that, I'd prefer to fly fish or see to my garden or goof off with my son than read.
