Amber Tamblyn's 6 favorite books

Amber Tamblyn is a contributing writer for the Poetry Foundation and the author of three works of poetry, Free Stallion, Bang Ditto, and Dark Sparkler. As an actress, she has been nominated for an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and an Independent Spirit award.

One of her six favorite books, as shared with The Week magazine:
Masters of Atlantis by Charles Portis

A masterpiece. More happens on the first page of this book than on that of any other book I've read — because Portis knows how to pack a punch. In his fourth novel, a group of ambitious yet somewhat pathetic cult leaders manage to build a massive religion despite severe personal shortcomings.
Read about another entry on the list.
