Best books: Neil LaBute

The playwright and film director Neil LaBute named his six best books for The Week magazine.

One novel on the list:
Blue Angel by Francine Prose (Harper Perennial, $15).

A writer of extraordinary gifts, Prose is one of those authors you buy the second you see a new book out on the shelves. Her take on Heinrich Mann’s Professor Unrat is a serious and simultaneously hilarious swipe at PC campus politics and the very idea of sexual harassment.
Read about all six books on LaBute's list.
