Favorite Book: The Ox-Bow Incident

"Choose a favorite book? That’s impossible! There’s so many…The morality of "The Ox-Bow Incident". The stark reality of “The Professional" by W. C. Heinz. The power of "Crime and Punishment". The beauty of “Madame Bovary". The brilliance of "The Age of Innocence". Don’t forget "Death Comes for the Archbishop". Okay, choose one… "The Ox-Bow Incident". Just read the preface—that alone is transcendent."
