About meRetired - so plenty of time to read.

About my libraryIn my book you only get one life, so this is the collection that suits until the joker deals. I'd like to reduce the number of books over the next few years (and now achieved - making a bookseller very happy), but still at least three years reading languishes.

The collection divides into five areas: Music, Russian lit. & crit. in translation, London history & topography, art history, and the rest.

When the reading is almost done I'll don my hat, pick up my begging bowl and disappear into the forest with three books: a favourite, one partially read, and another that is unexplored.

GroupsFans of Russian authors, The Prizes, TinyCat

Favorite authorsSamuel Beckett, Roberto Bolaño, Teju Cole, Gustave Flaubert, James Joyce, Alexander Pushkin (Shared favorites)
