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.

Nox - Anne Carson I'm not sure I'd classify this as poetry. It's really a collage/pastiche/construction. I found it absorbing and meaningful, but even though its linguistic/structural core is a poem by Catullus, mourning his brother's death (hence, Carson's brother's death), I found it poetic but not a poem. Read with Carol Maso's The Art Lover: A Novel to compare two ways to constellate language and images as a memorial.
