Missing Cousin Greg? Read These 7 High-Stakes Books for Succession Fans
HBO’s hit TV series Succession revolves around media mogul Logan Roy as his deteriorating health, combined with pressure from stakeholders, forces him to cede (some) control of his multi-billion dollar company, Waystar Royco, to one of his adult children. With its themes of narcissism, manipulation, corporate greed, and hopelessness, I often wonder: Why in the world do I like this show so much?? I’m not a fan of rich, self-centered characters, and I’m allergic to words like “private equity.” I don’t think I’ll ever know the answer, but for anyone else who’s equally mystified by their fascination with the Roy family, check out which books I think each character would love to read. The books all have the same high stakes and compelling narratives as Succession, and—as we all eagerly await Season 3—make for some good, absorbing reads.
