Matt Richtel's list

Matt Richtel, author of the new Silicon Valley thriller Hooked, contributed "The List" to The Week magazine this week.

One of his titles:

Youth in Revolt: The Journals of Nick Twisp by C.D. Payne

I nearly injured myself laughing. The story is about a geeky 14-year-old desperate to lose his virginity while bearing a larger-than-life vocabulary and worldview.
Read about the other books to make Richtel's list.

Matt Richtel is an author, journalist, and cartoonist. Hooked is his first novel, and he is currently writing a second, tentatively titled Idle's Mind. He makes most of his living as a New York Times reporter, covering technology and telecommunications from the San Francisco bureau.
