About meAcademic, activist.

About my libraryPerhaps I first thought of "my library" in the 1970s. I worked in a second-hand bookshop (San Francisco's McDonald's Books from 1976 to 1989); I was allowed to acquire books by purchasing at cost, and "my library" began to grow. When I began graduate school in 1980 (UC Berkeley, French), I used the concept of a "working library" to justify further acquisitions. In the 1990s I seemed to acquire fewer books, but since 2001 I have grown increasingly interested in more current material and my library has begun to grow again.
