My favorite genre is probably Magical Realism because it has taught me so much on how to live. It is related to meta-narration and mythology. It is a departure from the traditionally heavy continental literature (attempts to portray the world through a Realist's lens).
Favorite authorsAlain De Botton, Po Bronson (Shared favorites)
