Tom Benton is our Penguin sales rep. He might be the only person in America who likes David Benioff’s City of Thieves more than we do (except maybe Amanda Peet). He recommends the following books:
City of Thieves
By David Benioff
If you haven’t read it already, you must read this. It is that rare novel that I can recommend to any reader and my favorite of the year. You won’t be disappointed.
The Little Book
By Selden Edwards
It is time travel to turn-of-the-century Vienna, yes, but you just have to love a good story (and a little history) to be seduced by this novel’s considerable charm.
Pictures at a Revolution
By Mark Harris
Through his examination of the five Best Picture nominees of 1967, we get a thoroughly engrossing film and cultural history of this defining moment in America. Indispensable for the film buff.
