Ann Patchett's favorite books

Ann Patchett's books include the new novel, State of Wonder.

One of her six favorite books from her reading over the last year, as told to The Daily Beast:
A Perfect Spy
by John le Carré

I read this book after every person at a large dinner party claimed it was his or her all-time favorite novel. They told me I had to read it immediately. Excellent advice.
Read about the other books on the list.

A Perfect Spy is one of Jonathan Miles's five best books on the secrets of espionage and one of Philip Pullman's forty favorite books.
