About meLibrarian. Need I say more?

About my libraryIf this is even possible, I own too many books. I don't read as many as I'd like - work and life get in the way. Love Canadian literature and books about society/politics/history, as well as art (especially Japanese/Asian art).

Gaughin = van Gogh? :-)
thanks for blasting thomas friedman. he's a real dipshit and a prime example of literary herd mentality. if you want to read a far better book on globalism and economics take a look at "Bad Samaritans" by ha joon chang.

one of the chapters appropriately blows friedman's golden straight jacket nonsense right out of the water and directly into the recycling dumpster where it belongs.

cheers.
I enjoyed your review of Tokyo: A Certain Style. I need to see if I can find it here in Nagoya where I live. It at first amazed me about the stuff-stuff-stuff that always was a feature of the "western" part of Japanese dwellings in contrast to the stereotypical image of sparsely and exquisitely pristine Japanese rooms. A newer phenomenon (in the past two years) is more and more little storage unit rentals that are springing up, Fittingly small, Japanese style--I'd doubt you could fit a king size mattress into one--not that anyone has king size beds.
