About meI'm older than Elvis or John Lennon, but not as old as Paul McCartney or Bonnie Raitt. I love flowing water, flying geese, music, movies and books, books, books. My job is in the legal field, with responsibilities that include case management, computer support, and systems administration. I have a B.A. in English Literature from an excellent small liberal arts college, and continue on my own to study and enjoy the works of William Faulkner, who takes up more shelf space than anyone else in my library. I married one English major and raised another. My catalog will include books owned by the one I married, as well as my own. You'll find the offspring's catalog under lycomayflower. Did I mention I love books, books, books?
About my libraryEclectic. Threatens to take over the house. Much fiction, 19th, 20th and now 21st century. Emphasis on Southern writers, including Faulkner, Welty, Shelby Foote, Flannery O'Connor, James Lee Burke, Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote. Lots of non-fiction too--history, especially WWII and the American Civil War, science and natural history, modern religious scholarship, cookbooks. Fair representation of poetry, essays, biography, genealogy, local history (PA, NY, LA) "Candy" in the form of detective fiction, suspense, fantasy, and the best of Stephen King.
