“What they’re reading” appears as an occasional series in MinnPost’s Book Club Club section. We’re asking well-known and not-so-well-known Minnesotans to tell us about the books they’re reading and recommending to others — and why. In today’s installment, we hear from author Charles Baxter.
Right now I’m reading Tom McCarthy’s new novel “C” — I’ve been asked to review it.
The book that I’ve been recommending to others recently is William Maxwell’s “So Long, See You Tomorrow,” a fascinating hybrid novel: part memoir, part true crime nonfiction and part novel — all in less than 130 pages.
