Scottoline's Favorite Writers

We asked Scottoline to tell us about some of her all-time favorite writers. Here's (some of) what she said: "First of all, Barbara Kingsolver, Mark Helprin, Scott Turow, Philip Roth.... Add to that Nelson DeMille because his writing is so honest, his research authentic, and his humor so very sly, and Janet Evanovich, because everybody needs a speedy, fun crime novel." And that was just the beginning!

The Book That Got Her Started

The Firm
by John Grisham
Grisham's break-out second novel is "changed my life on a very literal level," she says. "Grisham opened my eyes to the possibility that lawyers could have rich interior lives ... and from him I learned that these lives could make for first-rate suspense fiction."

Angela's Ashes: A Memoir
by Frank McCourt
Scottoline calls McCourt's memoir of growing up dirt poor in Limerick, Ireland "the only example I know of a book that can mix horror and humor, and leave you weak." She also has a fondess for Shogun and The Godfather, among others.
