Must-read is an understated review of Jess Walter’s latest novel Beautiful Ruins. In a story that goes from a sun-kissed 1960s coastal town in Italy to present-day Hollywood (with a timeline jump to WWII), Walters’ signature wit is in peak form. As sprawling as the various narratives and characters — including Richard Burton circa Cleopatra — are, it makes for a beautiful read.
