About meI used to be a big-city corporate professional type, but now I am working in theatre and loving it. Over the years I have studied literature, philosophy and law, as well as theatre.

About my libraryI have not finished indexing all of my books, but now that I have a bit more time on my hands, I am trying to do so. In the meantime, I am adding new books as I acquire them and reviewing books as I read them.

Theatre, literary fiction and philosphy are the main focal points, but there are some real outliers (some, but not all, of which were gifts). There is a fair amount of material in German.

Since published play texts are often sold at the theatre when a plays are performed, and since I see a lot of new plays, my collection of new play texts is growing relatively quickly.

Glad you're happy about what I picked! I hope you like them. Do let me know, once you've read them :)
Browsing libraries rather than sleeping, and spotted some unusual books in yours . Also, reminded of “Smilla's Sense of Snow”, which I should re-read, I still remember the feeling of emptiness that Peter Hoeg got across so well, but haven’t been caught by anything else of his yet. The “Shipping News” was great too, another empty landscape.
