What is Todd Robins reading?
When Todd started at Watermark Books & Cafe, Hicks's walk in Robert Stone's novel, Dog Soldiers, was arguably his all-time favorite literary passage. That is still the case. Raymond Carver's short stories ranked near the top as well. Raymond Chandler, George V. Higgins and Elmore Leonard (Unknown Man No. 89) were in the mix. Yet, books kept landing on the Watermark shelving cart. Let's just say The Epicure's Lament by Kate Christensen was nicely done. William Kennedy's Roscoe; Allegra Goodman's Intuition. Philip Kerr's Gunther series is a treasure. Finally, histories. Stacy Schiff's Cleopatra stands out.
