What are your favorite books?

Lately I've been rereading the novels of E.L Doctorow and loving them. My favorite book is generally the one that I'm reading.

Who are your favorite authors?

Doctorow, Malcolm Gladwell, Nassim Taleb, Don Robertson (not a well-known author but one whose voice engages me almost totally), Tom Wolfe, Vonnegut, Tom Robbins, about forty others I can't think of now.

What are your favorite genres?

Contemporary fiction, cultural anthropology, economics.

What books would you like to read?

Don't know yet :-)


My name is Jane Talisman and I've been an avid reader all my life. I've taught classical piano for 25 years and then moved to medical technology. I work part-time at Flagstaff Med Center in the lab. Always wanted to join a reading group.
