Dennis Lehane is author of Live by Night (William Morrow, $27.99)
I have a little reading room/library in my house that looks out on the back yard. My 3-year-old loves to play there so it already carries a lot of warm memories.
I don't listen to music when I read, only when I write, and I don't snack much, so I might have a beer but that's about it.
The last book I read there was The History of the Ancient World by Susan Wise Bauer. If I'd switched out the beer for a cup of tea, I would have felt very British.
