Please list three favorite works of literature:

Lolita (that's probably on everyone's list) Middlemarch (so formative of my sensibilities) One Hundred Years of Solitude

Do you have a favorite literary time or movement? If so, what?

Early-mid 20th Century

Do you have a favorite or go-to style of literary criticism? If so, what?

Not anymore...now I just try to enjoy it, but previously post-structuralist.

Please list three favorite authors:

Nabokov, Joyce, Faulkner

What was the last book that you thoroughly enjoyed?

Though the writing style wasn't great, reading Erik Larson's "In the Garden of the Beasts" while visiting Berlin was fascinating.

Introduction

A friend suggested I should be reading ten times as much as I write, so here's a good way to structure that task. Undergrad major was English, but I drifted to other academic realms after that. Now the currents are carrying me back to literature.
