Alan Cheuse's Summer Reading List

All Things Considered book reviewer Alan Cheuse -- also a published author and creative writing professor at George Mason University in Virginia -- presents a list of summer reading suggestions. This year's list is a mix of new editions of old classics and exciting new works by fresh authors. Cheuse says that he asks writers to read from their work so that listeners "might get the flavor of the books from the waft of their voices."
