What is the last book you read?

Stasiland, by Anna Funder

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

To choose 3 favorites is too difficult, however desert island books I could re-read are :The Waves by Virginia Woolf, Tender is the Night by F.Scott Fitzgerald, and Truman Capote's The Grass Harp. I tried reading Proust, and oh my....what a total drag. It was like listening to a doped up, lucid grandmother muttering blurry recollections about madeleines and tea!

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

I love re-reading books. Anything by F.S.Fitzgerald- from the Great Gatsby to Babylon Revisited and Other Stories, Jack London's many short stories, Hemingway, Truman Capote's Other Voices Other Rooms- and of course any Salinger is like a balm to me.

Who is your favorite childhood author?

My favorite book as a kid was Ferdinand the Bull. Such personality both in the story and the drawings...

Introduction

I am a greedy reader, usually can't put a book down once the spine is cracked. Some of my favorites Raymond Carver, Virginia Woolf, F.Scott Fitzgerald, John Updike, E.M. Forster and the occasional poet, Ted Hughes, T.S. Eliot.
