Jess Walter reads from Beautiful Ruins ($25.99).

Beautiful Ruins is an absolute masterpiece.” — Pulitzer Prize winner Richard Russo

Jess Walter is the author of The Zero (a finalist for the National Book Award), Citizen Vince (a winner of the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Novel), Land of the Blind, Ruby Ridge, and Over Tumbled Graves (a New York Times Notable Book of the Year). He lives in Spokane, Washington.
