Absolutely. Bentley Little is one of my favorites and can't wait until August when The Academy comes out.

I had started with The Association and The Policy. Even though I have read all of them, my next two choices would be The Store and The Resort.

The Association was my first book by him.  I enjoy his books.  My favorite was "The Mailman and The Store".

Bentley Little is a good choice.

I also recommend Michael Laimo and Edward Lee.

Lee's books are a little "out there", but they're decent.
