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]

I saw that two of your favorites matched with mine - there's only one other LTer that has that - but they posted like 50 favorite authors. So considering I have 3 and you have 9, I think that's a bit cooler.
Proust and System of the world? See you in a few years when you re-eemrge from your reading chair!
Saw you liked Trainspotting, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here (as well as on a few other book-related sites). Thought you might like it since it's also about a group of disturbed kids and a bit dark. I'd be glad to e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like. Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:

Which of you is the OE person with the plague? I'm leaning OE/OS and the gospel -- love that army of angels on horseback sweeping down from the high plains of heaven(Murphy's translation of the _Heliand_).
Hey Josh, Hey Josh!
