Steve Coll's six recommended books

Steve Coll is a Pulitzer Prize–winning author and reporter and the dean of Columbia University's journalism school. At The Week magazine he recommended six books, including:
The Good Terrorist by Doris Lessing (1985).

This taut psychological novel about young would-be violent revolutionaries may be the most sophisticated work of political fiction published in English during this recent age of terrorism. It's another unduly neglected work by a master.
