What is Ron Riekki reading?

The current featured contributor to Writers Read: Ron Riekki, author of the novel U.P..

Don De Grazia, author of American Skin, on U.P.:
An exciting new voice. In the tradition of The Wanderers, Trainspotting and other wild rides through male adolescence, Ron Riekki’s U.P. gives us an in-the-round look at a tight knit group of “Yoopers.” Riekki tells their tale with uncompromised honesty and genuine artistry.
One paragraph from Riekki's entry:
Andrew Calcutt and Richard Shephard’s Cult Fiction: a reader’s guide—My favorite book of all time. I keep it by my bed and read a paragraph every day. I love to read about writers. My goal is to read every book listed in the recommendation section. I’m ten years into that commitment and am about halfway and the books I’ve read have greatly influenced the voice I have as a writer. [read on]
