About my libraryI have 100's of dectective novels from all of the works of Michael Connelly and Robert Crais, to the classics of Dahsell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, Ross McDonald, and Rex Stout. I especially like LA centered stories. I read many novels and histories,and my wife's and my bookshelves are full to double layers. If it is well written, I will read anything on any topic. The New York Review of books is my gateway to the best that is published. If I like what I read about a book there, I will buy it and read it. In my studio I have many fine art books. These books I have mainly to look at the reproductions rather than to read the text.
