At the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, we sat down with as many authors as possible to ask not about what books they’re currently reading, but about those unshakable few they return to, time and again, for re-reading.
 
Among our interviewees were Margaret Atwood, Rachel Kushner, Tom Bissell, Mary Otis, Stephen Burt, Sammy Harkham, Rob Roberge, Jess Walter, Hope Larson, and Jonathan Kirsch.
