About meI'm a freelance writer living in San Francisco and Boonville.

About my libraryIt's a muddle. Most of it is fiction--some classics and some recent--but I've also got a pretty good collection going of reference books on slang, bizarre science, and food, with a bit of poetry, history, travel, and baseball to round it all out.

Noticed you liked The Bluest Eye, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also southern and a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:

Thanks,

A little too abstract, a little too wise,
It is time for us to kiss the earth again,
It is time to let the leaves rain from the skies,
Let the rich life run to the roots again.

No, I just found From Versailles to Vichy at a library sale and am interested in the subject matter. I haven't read it yet. Sorry!

That's very funny about his parents. I liked Who Sleeps with Katz pretty well. But Fisher's, so far, is his masterpiece. And you're exactly right: his conjuring of place is one of the things that makes that book special. Though I know Boston a little from visiting I know his Boston better.

Yes! Fisher's Hornpipe. I've been preaching the gospel of McEwen for years now with little result. He seems an unjustly neglected author and that book, his first I think, is a comic masterpiece. Thanks for writing. I love to talk books.
