Feiler's Favorite Reads

In an interview with Barnes & Noble.com, Feiler was asked about his favorite books. Three of his ten favorites were related to the South; Feiler is a Georgia native who considers Pat Conroy's The Prince of Tides "the best book written about the area where I grew up." William Faulkner's Light in August is "the book that made me proud to be a Southerner," he says, and All the King's Men by Robert Penn Warren is "the best book I've read about the South -- its pain, its glory."
