About meI live in Washington, DC - a city I love.
About my libraryMy library is as eclectic as can be; my interestes range from literature to science and the occasional political cartoons compilation. I have several Portuguese and Hebrew language books (I am Brazilian, and Jewish) and I have a love of German expressionism (think Thomas Mann). My little library is also overflowing with books on Israel, Judaism, the Holocaust and WWII, poetry, crime procedurals, linguistics and philosophy.
