About meI'm a long-time book lover, now retired in Bonita Springs, Florida. Despite the English major, I ended up in a mostly technicaired l career with IBM and Pfizer, much of it Japan. I miss Kitazawa bookstore in Tokyo.

About my libraryThe books reflect an early interest in Joyce and Irish literature -- I actually won one of the old Saturday Review library awards in college, which I used to buy a vintage set of Harvard Classics. More recently I've been interested in early American history, especially the dissonance that comes when different cultures meet and start to interact. Our overseas experience ties in with that, of course, and we have lots of books about Japan and the other places we've been able to visit.
