I like classical but tend to prefer individual works over oeuvres.
Debussy's Clair de Lune, Holst's Planets, and Gershwin's Rhapsody
in Blue are a bit good.
I read English at University, and so enjoy most books. Big fan of
Italo Calvino, Mervyn Peake, Graham Greene and (early) T.S. Eliot.
Keep meaning to try Murakami. I prefer modernism and postmodernism.
Poststructuralism is fun to think about.
Big on food - love both eating out and cooking.
