"My favorite author is Gabriel Garcia Marquez," says Petrovsky, "and my favorite book is his One Hundred Years of Solitude. I could read it every day if there weren't so many other good stories to read. And my favorite quote? His, too: 'On a good day, working from nine o'clock in the morning to two or three in the afternoon, the most I can write is a short paragraph of four or five lines, which I usually tear up the next day.'"
Here are other books he can't live without.
