About my libraryJust a few good friends and immediate interests. I read mostly fiction up to age 40, and now it's entirely nonfiction. Madly collecting sequential art, comics, graphic novels, which are closely aligned to poetry: It is with words as with sunbeams, the more they are condensed, the deeper they burn. -Robert Southey (1774-1843).
