About meI'm a librarian with a systems / IT background living and working in London.

In the cartoon I am holding the logo of Vim, the best text editor.

About my libraryI've reined in the book buying over the last few years and now mainly read borrowed books. I add these to LT following a suggestion on Karen Schneider's blog (tags: library book, borrowed). This is for LibraryThing's recommendations, which are excellent in themselves but also an interesting approach to serendipitous discovery.

Favorite authorsMargaret Atwood, Jorge Luis Borges, Charles Bukowski, Manuel Castells, Philip K. Dick, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Nikolai Gogol, Hermann Hesse, A. M. Homes, Franz Kafka, Naomi Klein, Primo Levi, Alberto Manguel, Karl Marx, Octave Mirbeau, George Monbiot, David Foster Wallace, Jeanette Winterson, Slavoj Žižek (Shared favorites)
