About this author

I like Shakespeare, the romantic poets, the Victorian poets, modernists, middle-brow novelists and many kinds of murder mysteries and intriguing non-fiction books.

My favorite novelists are Austen, Trollope, Dickins, Eliot, Wharton, Pym, Iris Murdoch, and Elizabeth Taylor. I also like most of the great Russian novelists and just about anything that remains from the days of the doughty old widow at Windsor.

Please feel free to friend me if you take literature seriously and if you don't require the supernatural in your literature. I will not and cannot read books about vampires or werewolves or mermaids or unicorns or trips to Mars or excursions to Atlantis with a ghostly sherpa.

Firstly, I stopped reading on page 76. This is the third book I have read this year that has disturbed me by the author taking a proprietary fiction from real-life characters. "Shirley," actually used a lot of fictional quotations from Shirley Jackso ...more

"Automatic one-star because I couldn't finish this one. I made it up to April, but couldn't cut through the rest. I may skim it for the highlighted sections and then never read it again.

Good news is, there is some "meat" in this book. I'll try to s..." Read more of this review »

"For fun, someone should do a search through this book to see how many times the phrase "studies show that" actually appears. The entire book reads like a college term project written by a self-absorbed teacher's pet. (The author readily admits to..." Read more of this review »

I just don’t get it. For the better part of my life I feel that I’ve leaned towards the glass half full-look at the bright side-I’d like to teach the world to sing-make lemonade-happy happy joy joy side of things.
