I don't write traditional book reviews, especially for classics. I feel that I cannot make a contribution that others have not already. I am more interested in how each book adds something to who I am and I how I see the world and my life. Of course, with my keen interest in literature, I may throw out an observation, insight, or criticism, usually brief, occassionally snarky.
I love classic literature, literary fiction, and poetry. Well done sci-fi and fantasy will also find it's way into my hands. When I want the literary equivalent or junk food, I gorge on horror. My strongest interest is in books written between the world wars. WWI changed everything - I wish I had been around to take part.
Wallace Stevens changed my life. That's why I am the Blackbird.
