About meI am a full time sculptor and painter who used to be a full-time writer. As a reaction to the lessening physicality of the novel and written word ( it all exists out there on the internet and on e-books) I began making sculptures that were the same size as computer screens and writing on the sculptures. It all evolved.
About my libraryIn past few decades have been attracted to international books, particularly world fiction, rather than American titles. For a while I read Italian post-WW2 books as if they were potato chips. I particularly enjoy the Italian and the Indian ( Hindu and Muslim) novel. Reading outside the country is a way to understand the pulse of the planet. Like other LT members, I must have read two books a week for every week of my life. Titles listed in my library are the cream-of-the-cream.
