What is Ruth Scurr reading?

The scholar and literary critic Ruth Scurr is the latest contributor to the "Writers Read" series.

Her own book is a work of nonfiction -- the highly acclaimed Fatal Purity: Robespierre and the French Revolution -- yet her current reading is all fiction: she's a judge for the 2007 Man Booker Prize.

Read about a few of the 120 novels that she will have evaluated before the end of summer.
