What to read first?
Perrotta's The Abstinence Teacher ? Have read the entire Perrotta ouvre. Even own a hardbound copy of Bad Haircut: Stories of the Seventies. Love them all.
Richard Russo's Bridge of Sighs ? Still like The Risk Pool best of all.
Roth's Exit Ghost ? I like a lot of Roth. The Human Stain is a recent fave.
I'm going to read them all. Just not sure of order yet.
