What is the last book you read?

The last book I read (and the best thing I've read recently) was Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates. Haven't seen the movie yet, but the novel's characters are brilliantly drawn, and I found it very powerful.

Who is your favorite author?

A month ago, I would have said Kazuo Ishiguro or Edward Jones, but Richard Yates is now a contender too.

What are 3 random books off your book shelf?

Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf, The Beach at Galle Road by Joanna Luloff, and Tripmaster Monkey by Maxine Hong Kingston.

What types of books are you interested in reading?

Any kind of fiction.
