Giant, by Edna Ferber
“Personal favorite: anything by Edna Ferber, but I’d pick Giant first. Just a great, epic tale of love and loss and success and failure, all against the oil boom in Texas in the first half
of the 20th century.”
—Melanie Benjamin’s third novel, The Aviator’s Wife ($26, amazon.com), was published earlier this year.
