About my libraryMy library is a record of my serial obsessions. The first books I bought--early in my teens--were on prestidigitation. I still have them. Subsequent bouts of obsessive book buying have included poetry, mountaineering, the Himalayas, cooking, architecture and New Urbanism, Japan, wine, and Gustav Mahler (though not necessarily in that order).
