David Chase's 6 favorite books

David Chase is the creator of The Sopranos and the writer-director of the 2012 feature film Not Fade Away.

One of his six favorite books, as told to The Week magazine:
Freddy's Book by John Gardner

Gardner's 1980 novel is an amazing work of invention. A professor on a lecture tour is staying at the home of a fellow academic when the host's big, weird, painfully shy son shares a book he's written about 16th-century Sweden and the devil coming in to straighten out affairs. This is a great, great book, and strange as can be.
Read about another novel on Chase's list.
