About my libraryThe Ideal Library Symbolizes Everything a Society stands for. A Society Depends On Its Libraries To Know Who it Is, Because Libraries Are Societies Memory(A.Manguel). This is my attempt to create my ideal library

Wislawa Szymborska Olga Grushin Lee Rourke José Saramago Hitomi Kanehara Hans Fallada Alessandro Baricco Tom McCarthy Masuji Ibuse Alberto Manguel Christian Bök David Foster Wallace Kōbō Abe Nicholson Baker Kazuo Ishiguro Alessandro Baricco Italo Calvino Steven Millhauser Cormac McCarthy J G Ballard Yukio Mishima Iain Banks James Joyce Don DeLillo Will Self William Gibson Gunter Grass Jorge Luis Borges Lawrence Ferlinghetti Ryunosuke Akutagawa Anthony Burgess Thomas Pynchon Albert Camus Robert Graves Roberto Bolaño Haruki Murakami Yoko Ogawa Shusaku Endo Ted Hughes Taichi Yamada Ryū Murakami Neil Gaiman George Pelecanos Michael Moorecock Koji Suzuki Nietzsche George Steiner Richard Dawkins David Mitchell Fenando Pessoa, plus that old cliché & many more, as like all ideals it's not a fixed point, it will continue to grow.

I'm dropping by with thanks for your review of *Broom* - what a book!
I confess that I do find your "about me" cool, but then I'm 68, so that may not be a compliment.
Anyway, thanks for an inviting look at a wonderful book.
Great Guido Gozzano review!
I read your review on The Sunset Limited. I loved that book. Did you see the movie? The acting by Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson were amazing. And the movie was quite true to the book. Brought tears to my eyes.
