Ann Brashares' 6 favorite books

Ann Brashares is the author of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. For The Week magazine she named her six favorite books.

One title on the list:
Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry

A few years ago I told my friend I hadn’t read Lonesome Dove yet and she said, “I am jealous of you.” After I read it I understood. It is 960 pages of pure pleasure. At the end you feel sadly cast back out into your lesser world. If you have not read Lonesome Dove, I am jealous of you.
Read about the other books on the list.

Lonesome Dove may just be The Great Texas Novel.

--Marshal Zeringue
