Someone from the UP likes Barbara Pym. Lots of fun at the conference this Summer in Oxford.....and Canadian Literature. Interesting.
Hi there,
We seem to have a few British lit books in common - hope you don't mind if I use the 'watch' feature for your library?
cheers,
b.
Hey there yooperprof. So you find my humble collection mildly interesting. You know I live down here in southeastern Mi. from April to October. If I were to guess I'd guess that you're up there at NMU. Just a guess. Nice place up there. Superior is just that. Feel free to drop in if you are that way inclined. Later.

Hey, Yooper - Take a look at my MI memoirs at RatholeBooks.com - Tim
I would recommend Monique Truong's "The Book of Salt" in reference to your stated interest in contemporary gay literature (with the emphasis on literature).
Hi, Prof. My eye was caught by our books-in-common, and the fact I grew up in Ann Arbor. I've been in San Francisco for the last 20 years, and can't help but admire your UP location. All the best, RachelP. (another Trollope fanatic)
