William H. Macy: best books

The actor William H. Macy named a "best books" list for The Week.

One title to make the list:
The Willow Field by William Kittredge.

I easily deem this 20th-century epic Western as one of my favorites. The book chronicles the life and times of Rossie Benasco, the son of a Reno, Nev., casino boss. Rossie’s decision to leave home to become a ranch hand leads him on many life adventures.
Read about another book on Macy's list.

Read an excerpt from The Willow Field.
