I especially love writers who think, and eloquently write.
I most especially love writers/thinkers who are eloquent and write poignantly about human rights, compassion, dissent, and love.

Quant a
la meva biblioteca
I'm just beginning to amass a decent library, so there's not much. Some highlights: I have Arundhati Roy's The God of Small Things, a prize possession, and Gore Vidal's Empire. I am looking to collect all of Ms. Roy's political essays and Chomsky's works as well. I have some books of poetry, Christina Rosetti, Wordsworth, etc., but I keep giving them away. I have a tiny collection of Arthurian Lore, also Frederick Douglass' A Narrative of the Life. . .and Hawthorne's The Scarlett Letter. Another favorite book of mine is Taylor Caldwell's Dear and Glorious Physician. I have an old copy of it. I collect a little bit of Children's Lit. as well; have a signed copy of George Shannon's Sea Gifts.

I have recently made some connections between Arundhati Roy's work, and William Trevor, esp. Beyond the Pale & Other Stories. I adore Trevor.
