What did you think of Jess Walter’s ‘Beautiful Ruins’?

    Through the rest of the summer, NewsWorks Tonight is going to be talking to WHYY staffers about their summer reading habits — from brand-new books to classic; novels and short stories to non-fiction; serious literature to guilty pleasure.

    Coming soon, WHYY’s behavioral health reporter, Maiken Scott, will talk about “Beautiful Ruins,” from novelist Jess Walter, published in June.

    If you’re interested in contributing to the segment, give us your thoughts on Walter’s fiction.

    Have you had a chance to pick “Beautiful Ruins” up yet? Had you planned on it? Did you enjoy any of Walter’s previous work?
