Contemporary fiction, mostly. Man Booker, Pen/Faulkner, National
Book Award winners and nominees are usually good by me.
I get the New Yorker. Someone in my building gets the Economist and
leaves it in the hallway, so sometimes I read that, too, for a
change of pace. Someone else gets Cosmo. I don't read that.
Mostly documentaries. My go-to is anything about cults or drag
queens. Also: North Korea. Ballet. Dogs. Prison life.
Artichokes. Gummies. Black licorice wheels. Soup. Oysters and
Bob Dylan. Joni Mitchell. Hank Williams Sr. and Patsy Cline. Billie
Holiday. Jolie Holland. Verdi, Puccini. Bach's choral music.
The three men I'd like to go back in time to sleep with:
William Shatner, 1969
Bob Dylan, 1970
Paul Newman, 1967
