About meDue to the fact that we can no longer tell our books apart, this is a joint account. The Prophet tends to favor modernism and is embarking on an elusive quest for the post modern novel of the 21st century. The Mistress (that’s me) tends to favor pretty much everything except the puritans and modernism.

The picture on our profile is a charcoal rendering (done by me) of a picture taken by a friend of ours.

"...and now she hungrily wanted to read every book on every shelf. An impossible task, to be sure, Herculean in its exaggeration, but Corliss wanted to read herself to death. She wanted to be buried in a coffin filled with used paperbacks." -[[Sherman Alexie]] 'The Search Engine', [Ten Little Indians]
