I love to read! It's one of my all time favorite things to do.
What are your favorite books?
There are so many! Off the top of my head I'd say -- Written On The Body, Lincoln In The Bardo, Hardboiled Wonderland and the end of the World, The Apprenticeship of Big Toe P, The Vegetarian, In Search of Lost Time, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Pride & Prejudice, I Stand Here Ironing, The Year of Magical Thinking, Me Talk Pretty One Day, The Brain Dead Megaphone... and so many more!
Who are your favorite authors?
Again, there are many, but the ones who wrote the books listed above are... Jane Austen, Marcel Proust, George Saunders, Oscar Wilde, Haruki Murakami, Jeanette Winterson, Rieko Matsuura, Joan Didion, Tillie Olson, Han Kang, David Sedaris. There are tons of amazing writers out there!
What are your favorite genres?
I read creative non-fiction essays and fiction mostly. My favorite genres are Magical Realism, Cyber Punk and traditional Gothic literature. I also tend to be a big fan of literary classics and slice of life type stuff. With me, the more surreal the better!
What genres won't you read?
Nothing I have a hard line against reading, but I don't really seem to click with science fiction, fantasy or traditional mystery stuff. I just get bored. But I'm not against reading any of those genres. I'm open to finding something I like, I just haven't yet.
Audiobooks, e-books, "real" physical books ~ which do you read?
What books do you recommend most to others?
Written On The Body (it's just beautiful, I've re-read it more times than I can count), In Search of Lost Time (it's long, but if you can get through it it'll change the way you read and interact with art FOREVER), I Stand Here Ironing (Tillie Olsen is a master of the written word and not enough people know about it), literally anything by George Saunders (the man is a ding dang genius)
How often do you get to read?
Not nearly as often as I'd like.
How many books do you read in a week, month or year?
No clue. Depends on what my work/home life is doing.
