Thousands of books have been written about, or set
in, Arizona. Titles for Reading Arizona: The Literary Landscape
were selected from among the recommendations we received that we could place geographically
and that gave us a good overview of literature and a good representation of authors.
Many tough choices were made, and many books were put aside with regret--but they
won't pass unnoticed. To accommodate every eligible book the Reading Arizona
Book Listing was developed. It contains not only all the books on the map but also
the titles not selected that fit the criteria of being about Arizona, or set in
the state (as nearly as we can figure).
If you have a favorite, we'd love to include it.
