T C Boyle recommends

Quinn's Book (1988)
(Albany Cycle, book 4)
William Kennedy
"A revelation. Large-minded, ardent, alive on every page, it is a novel to savor."

The Crash of Hennington (2003)
Patrick Ness
"Funny, subversive... Patrick Ness recreates the world as we know it, infusing it with a charm and whimsy that brings to mind Calvino."

Mentor (2010)
Tom Grimes
"One of the truest accounts of a writer's life - of two writers' lives - I've yet seen. A poignant and beautiful book."
