I read a lot, indiscriminately and voraciously. My favorite book is
also my favorite work of art of any medium, James Joyce's
. It's an annual tradition of mine to reread it on
Bloomsday. Other favorites are The Magic Mountain

by William Faulkner and Pale
by Vladimir Nabokov. I just read Nevada
Binnie, The Man in the High Tower
by Philip K. Dick, and
Many Subtle Channels
by Daniel Levin Becker and am currently
reading The God of Small Things
by Arundhati Roy.

particular. Some favorites from this past year have been, L.E.

of the Future

Here's my last.fm page
. My standards are David Bowie,
Converge, and Ivy. Lately I've been listening a lot to Dillnger
Escape Plan, Camera Obscura, and Janelle Monae.
I love all kinds of food, sushi and Italian particularly. I can
grill up a mean steak, but this doesn't mean I don't like tofu. I
can go for Bugs-Bunny-as-a-teakettle spicy or modern French
cuisine. My favorite restaurant in the city is India Quality.
Though I did just discover a wonderful Himalayan restaurant in Ball
Square. One word: mo-mos.
