About meBipedal primate with the physiology of a large tropical mammal; species origins, Africa; interests, varied.
About my libraryMy online listings are a virtual library of books that I've read, most of which reside in my home library. A minority are books I've not finished. Outside of fiction (and I love the classics!), areas of special interest include evolutionary biology and the history of science. However, I also like to read world history, politics, and biography. In addition, I have special interests in the writers Somerset Maugham and Sinclair Lewis.
