I’m in a Book, Ya’ll!

Sorry about the “Ya’ll”, but I’m very excited. Start Here Volume 2 is out!


From the announcement over on Bookriot:

There are so many fantastic authors and great books out there that sometimes it’s hard to know where to begin. Start Here, Volume 2 solves that problem; it tells you how to read your way into 25 amazing authors from a wide range of genres–from classics to contemporary fiction to comics.

I wrote the chapter on Daniel Woodrell (short version: read all his books). Don’t let that discourage you, however, because Bookriot found some very clever people to write the other chapters, which are on the following authors:

Alan Moore
Anne Carson
Charles Portis
China Mieville
Colum McCann
Daniel Woodrell
Dave Eggers
David Mitchell
Dorothy Parker
Douglas Coupland
Flannery O’Connor
George Orwell
Isaac Asimov
James Salter
Jennifer Egan
John Green
John Steinbeck
Octavia Butler
Philip Roth
Roald Dahl
Salman Rushdie
Toni Morrison
Ursula K. LeGuin
Virginia Woolf
William Faulkner

So… go check it out.
