That changed your life: “The Working Poor: Invisible in America” by David K. Shipler … It opened my eyes to the widespread poverty probem in the U.S. and in the world. It’s heartbreaking.
That you’ve read more than once: “A Wrinkle in Time” by Madeleine L’Engle … I’ll never get tired of that book.
That you’d want on a desert island: Any Norton Anthology … Plenty of variety and plenty of pages to use for toilet paper.
That made you laugh: “The Brothers K” by David James Duncan … Man, I love that book. It’s so rad.
That made you cry: None that I can remember … maybe I’m heartless.
That you wish had been written: “Why I Suck Hardcore” by Jerry Falwell and Paige Patterson
That you wish was never written: “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” by Mark Twain … I know it’s sacreligious for an ex-English major to say this, but I hate that book. Ugh.
That you are currently reading: “Middlesex” by Jeffrey Eugenides … Who doesn’t love reading about Greek hermaphrodites?
That you want to read: “The Brothers Karamazov” by Fyodor Dostoevsky … It’s a classic, and I hear it’s pretty amazing.
