Which of his books have you read, Elise?

What I like most about his books is that they are *constructed*.  He is
always pushing the limits of his ability and trying something new--with
technique, with character, things like that.  I'm both interested in the
story and caught up in the intellectual challenge of trying to figure the
plot out before he reveals it.
