Pavone's new novel is The Accident.
One of five books that changed him, as shared with the Sydney Morning Herald:
The Catcher in the Rye - J.D. SalingerRead about the other books on the list.
It's a tough moment to realise the world is filled with phonies and that you perhaps are one of them. Catcher has helped generations of young people get through the resulting crisis of faith - is life worth all the hassles? I used to read it every year, right before Christmas, as much as possible while sitting on a Central Park bench at the pond with the ducks, the one that's in the book.
The Catcher In The Rye appears on Gabe Habash's list of the 10 most notorious parts of famous books, Robert McCrum's list of the 10 best books with teenage narrators, Antoine Wilson's list of the 10 best narrators in literature, A.E. Hotchner's list of five favorite coming-of-age tales, Jay McInerney's list of five essential New York novels, Woody Allen's top five books list, Patrick Ness's top 10 list of "unsuitable" books for teenagers, David Ulin's six favorite books list, Nicholas Royle's list of the top ten writers on the telephone, TIME magazine's list of the top ten books you were forced to read in school, Tony Parsons' list of the top ten troubled males in fiction, Dan Rhodes' top ten list of short books, and Sarah Ebner's top 25 list of boarding school books; it is one of Sophie Thompson's six best books. Upon rereading, the novel disappointed Khaled Hosseini, Mary Gordon, and Laura Lippman.
