where the writers are

Favorite Books

My 'favorite' list is continuously evolving. Some titles that have stayed with me for a long time are The Catcher in the Rye, Saul's Book, The Great Gatsby, and The Phantom Tollbooth. More recently, I was hugely impressed by Middlesex, The Wicked Trilogy, Mordred: Bastard Son, and The Golden Mean.

What I'm Reading

My current book queue includes two by Gregory Maguire: What-the-Dickens and The Next Queen of Heaven. I'm also looking forward to reading Shyam Selvadurai's Funny Boy.
