Do you want to read books by some of the best authors in Maryland? They include Madison Smartt Bell, Jessica Anya Blau, Taylor Branch, Tom Clancy, Larry Doyle, Dan Fesperman, Stephen Hunter, Laura Lippman, Jen Michalski, Nora Roberts, Natalie Standiford, Anne Tyler and Elissa Brent Weissman.
In the living room of Anne Tyler, you could shelve virtually all the books under a single heading: fiction. Eudora Welty. John Updike. Vladimir Nabokov. Reynolds Price. A rare brush with fact is “More Matter,” a collection of Updike’s essays and criticism. Otherwise, don’t expect any works of history or politics. Biographies? What’s the point? She knows how the story will end.
