About My Library
My library is mainly a mix of women writers, history, women's studies, science fiction, some classics. I tend to avoid the blockbusters.

Favourite quotes:

"...the influence of cocktails on modern life cannot be exaggerated"
The Diary of a Provincial Lady
E M Delafield

"One resents being axed from the narrative, apart from anything else. I'd have liked to know the outcome."
Moon Tiger
Penelope Lively
About Me
I live in east London with my partner who goes under the name of i-94 on LibraryThing. No kids, no pets, just lots of books and not enough shelves to put them on.
