Enjoying lunch and reading The Innocent Man, by John Grisham.
His favorite book of all time--Cannery Row, by John Steinbeck. It's the only book he's read more than once. Since he was in school, when he read it the first time, he's read it again every couple of years. The draw? It's this sort of lost Americana. He likes the Doc character.
If he were to write his own book, what would it be about? No idea.
What did he read when he was a kid? Probably, he reflected, at around age 9 or 10, the Hardy Boys, Tom Sawyer.
