Nick Offerman’s six favorite books

Actor Nick Offerman (NBC's Parks and Recreation) has a new book out: Gumption: Relighting the Torch of Freedom With America's Gutsiest Troublemakers.

One of his six favorite books, as shared at The Week magazine:
The Tenth of December by George Saunders

Saunders, one of our most hilarious and incisive living writers, is another author whose entire canon I can recommend with enthusiasm. I suggest reading this masterful book of short stories twice; the interconnectedness of the themes seems even more profound on the second pass.
Read about the other entries of the list.

The Tenth of December is among Melissa Albert's four books that will make you glad you are alive now (and not in the past or the future).
