About My Library
Ever-changing. Full of obsessions, past and present: modernist women's poetry; the Silk Road; film; classical Greece; Anne Carson; Sally Potter; visual culture; women artists; mythology and fairy tales, eco-living; graphic novels. Always trying to make space for what's coming next, always browsing, rereading, sharing.

In the throes of a serious AbeBooks addiction as I try to work out my next project. Thinking about a new more abstract set of tags: hopeful, passionate, alive...
About Me
I live, breathe & eat books; wish i still worked in a bookstore (and almost got a job in a library!); write books; write in books (pencil only); have friends who write books; edit friends' books. I love the experimental, the obscure, the activist and the whimsical. Sometimes I buy a book I already have. Sometimes I lose a book I love. I lend books like pennies. I guess that's why they call me delirium.
