|Who Are You?|
On occasion, I still love being utterly lost when I read. It's relaxing to let my mind frolic around. Postmodern authors such as Thomas Pynchon, David Foster Wallace, and William Faulkner are excellent for that purpose. I enjoy mysteries from traditional to noir, adventure, literary fiction, criticism, philosophy, poetry, and books about science, politics, nature, and sports.
Our house and my car are overflowing with books. Some in my to-read pile: Samuel Delaney's Dhalgren, Alice LaPlante's Turn of Mind, Harry Mulisch's The Discovery of Heaven, David Benioff's City of Thieves, Ignacio Padilla's Shadow Without a Name, and Mary Willis Walker's Under the Beetle's Cellar. I've been doing a lot of reading, fiction and nonfiction, on the theme of identity: amnesia, impersonation, misidentification as in Capgras delusion, twins, doubles, and doppelgängers. What about you? What have you read, and what are you looking forward to reading?
