Among his favorite authors and volumes, Middleton cites “Truman Capote’s ‘In Cold Blood’ — masterful reporting and writing and eerie Kansas atmosphere; Richard Ellmann’s 1987 biography of Oscar Wilde, one of the best biographies published in recent decades; the Paris journals of Janet Flanner, The New Yorker’s French correspondent from the 1920s through the 1970s; and several novels by Patrick Modiano, a French writer who often returns to questions of memory and World War II, and who won the 2014 Nobel Prize for Literature.
