Om migI love reading, writing, and thinking.
I especially love writers who think, and eloquently write.
I most especially love writers/thinkers who are eloquent and write poignantly about human rights, compassion, dissent, and love.

Books I Have Read & Heartily Recommend:

How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe,
Charles Yu. . .
The God of Small Things, Arundhati Roy
War Talk, Arundhati Roy
Manufacturing Consent, Chomsky & Herman
For Reasons of State, Chomsky
The Fateful Triangle, Chomsky
Orientalism, Edward Said

Book I cannot wait to read: If on a winter's night a traveler, Italo Calvino.

Om mitt bibliotekI'm just beginning to amass a decent library, so there's not much. Some highlights: I have Arundhati Roy's The God of Small Things, a prize possession, and Gore Vidal's Empire. I am looking to collect all of Ms. Roy's political essays and Chomsky's works as well. I have some books of poetry, Christina Rosetti, Wordsworth, etc., but I keep giving them away. I have a tiny collection of Arthurian Lore, also Frederick Douglass' A Narrative of the Life. . .and Hawthorne's The Scarlett Letter. Another favorite book of mine is Taylor Caldwell's Dear and Glorious Physician. I have an old copy of it. I collect a little bit of Children's Lit. as well; have a signed copy of George Shannon's Sea Gifts.

I have recently made some connections between Arundhati Roy's work, and William Trevor, esp. Beyond the Pale & Other Stories. I adore Trevor.
