Are you new to Austin?

Yes, just moved here in March 2014.

Do you prefer heavier or lighter reading?

Heavier, I guess, but not leaden! Definitely want to be challenged, emotionally engaged and intrigued and to read material with some complexity and depth.

Who is your favorite author?

Hard to pick just one--off the top of my head, at various points it's probably been a tie between Haruki Murakami, Henry James, Andre Dubus (senior) and Alice Munro

What is your favorite type of book?

Literary fiction (short stories and novels) and personal essay/memoir; intelligent nonfiction. Wouldn't mind some smart, provocative, educational reading on history, politics, finance and world affairs

Is there any book that you'd like the club to discuss at one of the monthly meetings?

At the risk of evoking the non-bibliophilic Sarah Palin, let me think on that and get back to you?!

Introduction

I'm an editor/writer and majored in literature but, since I technically read all day for a living, need a little incentive to get with "the good stuff" (material of substance) at the end of the day! And I'd love to find people to talk books with.
