What is the last book you read?

In progress at this moment - Vanity Fair (Thackery) Recent - Trespass (Tremain), Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet (Mitchell) Just finished the short-story collection "How We Are Hungry" (Eggers)

Name your 3 favorite books and one that was just a big disappointment

Favorites: Lost Illusions (Balzac), War & Peace (Tolstoy), an American Tragedy (Dreiser) Disappointment: All The King's Men (Warren)

Have you ever re-read a book because it was just so good?

The Fountainhead, Sister Carrie, Babbit, Return of the Native; Bonfire of the Vanities, among others, is on my to-do list . . . too may books, too little time . . .

Who is your favorite childhood author?

Whoever it was who wrote the Superman comics!


I always loved literature. I'm a heavy reader of classics, but am dipping into more modern works.
