Jess Walter's six acclaimed novels include the #1 New York Times bestseller The Beautiful Ruins, the National Book Award finalist The Zero, and Citizen Vince, winner of the Edgar Award. A former print journalist, he was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for his coverage of the infamous Ruby Ridge standoff. His short stories have been chosen three times for the Best American Short Stories anthology, and his other short fiction has appeared in Ploughshares, McSweeney's, and Esquire, among numerous other publications. In his latest novel, Walter follows the fortunes of two brothers caught in the class upheavals of early-and eerily familiar-20th-century America. (recorded 11/17/2020)
