I read widely and in most genres but romance and westerns. Here you'll find my reviews since 2007, with a few reviews of previously read books as well.


In 2012, I completed an "authors of the world" challenge, reading a book for every country (and a few other entities) by someone who'd lived there for at least two years. I expect to tag these books by challenge and country in the near future. I'm still refining my list by adding books that better meet my challenge criteria.

Chicken with Plums

Chicken with Plums - Marjane Satrapi, Anjali Singh This didn't hold me the way Satrapi's other work has, but I may need to read it again. This is another Persian family narrative, but with a male protagonist and focus. It has the feel of a family story that has been burnished by association with mystical explanations.
