About meI'm something like a geologist/geophysicists and was thirty before I discovered Dostoyevsky, John Graves, poetry and much other good literature. I think my deepest interest is in literature about place, especially if there is a geological tilt. But I like a large spectrum of book types, although what I like the most seems to change frequently.
