Shelley Jerige Dear Orna,
My thanks for following on Goodreads. I can't wait to read your books. My favorite authors are Shakespeare, Sophocles,Homer,Joyce,Dante and last but not least Milton. I did enjoy reading Junot Diaz's The Brief and Wonderful Life of Oscar Wao, and Jose Saramago's Blindness. Shelley@whirlz on Twitter.
