Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
The New Yorker occasionally but I get the print version anyway.
If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell "it's the story of my life," what would you be talking about?
Always wanted more, never knew what.
Always wanted to be someone else.
Never satisfied, always looking, for what?
Six word memoirs suit me well.
In bed I like to read:
Nothing, beds are for sleeping.
My favorite story of all time is:
I just rediscovered the short story "The Rocking Horse Winner" by D. H. Lawrence and I found it just as searing as I did when I first read it in school. In terms of novels I love Our Mutual Friend but close runners up are Bleak House, Wuthering Heights, Pride and Prejudice, all the Barchester novels, Gaudy Night, Cat Among the Pigeons and The Pale Horse. Ok, and The Daughter of Time.
Right now, I'm reading:
Mostly mysteries but I am going to start reading a SF series by Lois McMaster Bujold. I also have some reading connected to research for a novel I am planning.
