Jess Walter's reading list

Jess Walter is all over this blog, most recently as a finalist for a National Book Award for The Zero.

His Citizen Vince won the 2006 Edgar Award for best novel and was Nick Hornby's favorite novel of the past year.

I clicked over to Walter's website where he lists some of the books he's been reading and offers his reaction. Refreshingly, he doesn't hold back if the book disappoints.

Visit the page and read what he makes of books by Tim Winton, Ian McEwan, Will Self, John Banville, Amy Hempel, and others.
