Thanks for the recommendation of Minotaur ..., Terry. It does sound compelling. I love magical realism, but like my magic to be clearly in the world of realism (House of the Spirits) rather than fantasy (Lord of the Rings).

I read All Quiet on the Western Front a bajillion years ago, but am due for another reread. As a child, I was very moved by the old film when I saw it on TV.

Let me know if you start your own reading thread -- I'd like to follow your reading. Unfortunately, I seldom find enough time for LT these days. Cheers, Kathi
Ms. Terry - Greetings from MI (that's Michigan) in the U.S. Nice to hear from you. I asked the gender because my wife's name is Terri, but it often gets misspelled. I started writing my memoirs a couple years after I retired and published the first one when I was 60. I'll be 66 this week and have a fifth book ready for publication sometime later this year. I am self-published, with the able assistance of my younger son, Scott, who is a very talented graphic artist and web designer (hence my website). My first three books are in pretty much chronological order - Reed City Boy, Soldier Boy, and Pinhead. The second, SB, is, I have been told, very R-rated, which shouldn't be any big surprise since it's about my army years back when I was young and callow - and pretty stupid too. It's also my most popular and best selling book (on Amazon); women don't usually like it though. My wife has cautioned me to tell people, "I'm not like that anymore." And her stock repsonse is "I didn't know him then." I would advise you to spring for the lifetime mbrshp here on LT. It's worth the money, I think. I'm met a lot of pretty interesting folks here and enjoy browsing thru other people's libraries, something I'm guilty of doing when I visit homes too. In fact my new book will have much in it about books and their importance in my life. I like your dog too. My brother has a bichon frise. He lives in northern Minnesota. One of my favorite dog books, also a memoir, is Hal Borland's The Dog Who Came to Stay. Merle's Door is a good one too. Be well, and stay in touch. - Tim
Hello, Terry - I just noticed you've added me as an interesting library. I'm wondering what we might have in common. Just looked at your addition, A Life's Work, by Rachel Cusk. I think I'd like it, as I recently read a couple books by Anne Roiphe which I enjoyed. I'm one of those rare men who likes some women's books - not the "chick lit" stuff, but the more serious kind. I'm not sure of your gender, so I'll tread softly. Merseyside, hmmm ... Is that like, as in "Ferry Cross the Mersey" by Gerry and the Pacemakers, or aren't you old enough to remember that old chestnut? Well, nearly bedtime. My wife's been watching US Figure Skating Championships all weekend, and the closing exhibitions just finished. I am currently reading a short novel called Articles of War, by Nick Arvin. It's WWII, but seems very similar to The Red Badge of Courage. Next up is probably Annick Smith's memoir, Homestead. And I am working on finishing up a book of my own which I hope to publish sometime later this year. Nice "meeting" you. Cheers (as I think the English say), Tim
