About meI review adolescent fiction and have a preference for literature that is "dark and dangerous" whether for adults or children and tweens. Being a slow reader, I prefer books that furnish one with "Ah..." moments rather than most works of popular fiction. Steinbeck said it best in his 1962 NP speech:"The ancient commission of the writer has not changed. He is charged with exposing our many grievous faults and failures, with dredging up to the light our dark and dangerous dreams for the purpose of improvement."
