Book tastes

My LibraryThing is quite up to date so something should be safe if it's not in it. I read mostly fiction but I also like non-fiction if it's a good story told with intelligence. Recently I have really enjoyed Lydia Millett's Mermaids in Paradise and Ali Smith's Winter. I like strange books, and I'd rather read something that doesn't quite come off but is unusual than something conventional. I like books by women with chutzpah, and I like clever books, and I also like humane science fiction. I'd also like to read more books in translation by women. I would quite like to be surprised!

Don't get this!

Please no hardbacks, they hurt my wrists and I don't have space for them. (Unless it's something you really think I'd love and it's not in paperback.) I don't like explicit violence.
