In anticipation of our "Summer Reading Issue," we asked which books you, as writers who read deeply year-round, turn to in the warm months ahead. Culled from readers' responses on pw.org and our Facebook page, here are the results. (Lost Roads, 1977) by Frank Stanford
Thick This book is thick.
Not a very serious take on the subject, but entertaining I've read this book twice; once when it came out about twenty years ago, and again a few weeks ago.
This is a wonderful read and well worth your time! The story moves cleverly between the world of 90, or possibly, 93 year old, Jacob, in a nursing home, as he tells the story of his life, the Depression era and the circus world.
