I like to read a variety of genre: mysteries, stories that give an inkling on different cultures (Japanese, Irish, Australian), pseudo biographies (stories written in the first person). Everything goes as long as the prose is good! The only type I have little patience with is probably historical fiction. Candelo by Georgia Blain, Boy's Life by Robert R. McCammon, Funny in Farsi: A Memoir of Growing up Iranian in America by Firoozeh Dumas, mildly en joyed because of the challenge: The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle: by Haruki Murakami.
The Tiger's Wife by Téa Obreht. Next on my list:Dreams of Joy by Lisa See, The Orphan Master's Son by Adam Johnson.
My name is Andrée Grandjean-Levy, I recently moved to Frisco to be near my children who live in Dallas. I am completely "nooked".
So glad I joined! Enjoy every moment.
