About my libraryMy library is roughly two thirds fiction and the rest non-fiction (mostly U.S. politics, (auto)biographies and a few left-leaning polemics). I have a fairly broad reading palate and welcome suggestions. :) Reading Bastard Out Of Carolina has recently stirred an interest in Southern fiction.
