There are lots of Pittsburgh-based movies, but how often do you read stories set in our town? Below are three books that take place here in the Steel City:
• “An American Childhood” – This memoir written by Annie Dillard takes readers through the author’s unconventional, adventure-filled upbringing in 1950s Pittsburgh.
• “Tomorrow and Tomorrow” – Tom Sweterlitsch’s dystopian novel explores the Archive, a virtual reconstruction of Pittsburgh’s buildings, landmarks and people.
• “The Ambulance Chaser” – If you love thrillers as much as I do, you might love Brian Cuban’s gripping tale of a Pittsburgh personal injury lawyer who ends up going on the run.
