“Since I’m a bit paranoid about unconsciously mimicking another writer, I read nonfiction while I’m writing a book and fiction when I’m not. I just finished the fourth volume of Robert Caro’s brilliant biography of Lyndon Johnson, The Passage of Power, and I’ve started The 9/11 Commission Report, which I’ve been meaning to read since it was published. Caro may write nonfiction, but his grasp of narrative, imagery, metaphor and his dramatic sensibilities rival those of most first-rate novelists.”

Rick Yancey, author of The 5th Wave

Yancey appears at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Books & Books, 265 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables.
