About meLongtime active member of LT, I think my library tells you everything you know about me except: I am wife to the best guy in the world, mother of three terrific now-adult children, and Nana to one ADORABLE grandson. Also able to leap tall buildings in a single bound and so on.
About my libraryI enjoy all kinds and forms of fiction, in English and in translation. I'm fascinated not just with story, but also with the art of fiction itself. I also enjoy poetry, literary criticism, cultural studies, art history, historical fashion and dress, New England history, social history, women's studies, some science, contemporary issues...and whatever else might catch my interest at any time.
