"I read a bunch of great books last year—The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay [by Michael Chabon], Dry [by Augusten Burroughs], Plainsong [by Kent Haruf]—but since I started working all the time, the books just pile up on the bedside table. I have become as dull as spit." —LAURA LINNEY

"A Multitude of Sins by Richard Ford. I like very much the landscape he makes about relationships between men and women. He is better at that than anyone else I have read." —JAVIER BARDEM

"My latest absolute crush on a writer is Augusten Burroughs. I have only read Running with Scissors so far but I ordered Dry from Amazon this morning. The way he writes is funny and appalling and terrifying and brilliantly witty. I find myself catching my breath at the end of every paragraph." —VANESSA REDGRAVE
