About meI blog about the books I read at

About my libraryStarted entering my collection here in March 2010. In fiction I have a proclivity for novels that engage with modernism, often in translation. My nonfictional reading covers literary criticism, philosophy, critical theory, and sociology, with an aesthetic compulsion that lures me to artist’s (including photographer’s) monographs.

Btw As a fellow Becket fan, I saw the production of 'Not I' at the Royal Court, which of course blew me away.

Thanks for your comments Anthony. It's a tricky one, I'd probably want Vincent Van Gogh's Letters, and Louis Couperus's quartet 'The Book of the Small Souls' too, so need to think what I would muscle out. The reality is, I doubt I could live with 50 books only!

Best wishes
Hi AnthonyTFS,

I see you just added 'Borges and Memory: Encounters with the Human Brain'; I would love to hear your thoughts once you get around to reading it. As both a fan of Borges (and his life story) and an interest in consciousness/memory/neuroscience/etc this book sounds like a perfect meeting of topics for me.
