My favorite novel last year was Jess Walter's accomplished Beautiful Ruins, a large part of which takes place in...Italy. A turns romantic, poignant, hilarious, and satirical, it also employs a wide variety of narrative techniques. Through Goodreads, fans of the book (Like your truly!) had a chance to ask Jess Walter questions about the book, about his writing habits, about what's next. The video below provides some wonderful insight into the origins of the book as Jess answers all manner of questions. He's definitely someone you'd like to have a couple of beers with.
