A: The Thirteen Clocks, by James Thurber; The Just So Stories, by
Rudyard Kipling; the Harry Potter series; The Writing Life, by
Annie Dillard; Assembling California, by John McPhee; The Handyman
(can't remember the author); anything by Joanne Harris; so many
B: The Piano; Pulp Fiction; Eating Raoul; Hombres Armados; The Big
Lebowski; Bowling for Columbine; etc...
C: just about anything not mass-produced (although I have a soft
spot for new-wave 80s stuff). But if you want specifics... think
Bitov, Klapa, bluegrass, Pontic fiddle, Boris Karlov (not the
actor!), Boban Markovic, John Lee Hooker, Ella & Louie, Buena
Vista Social Club, Manu Chao, Huun Huur Tu... and on and on ad
nauseum. I'll spare you. I like all the instruments that everyone
else hates--banjos and bagpipes and accordions and such, but I am
sensitive to others' preferences, and won't subject you to my music
collection unless you actually appreciate it.
D: CHOCOLATE. But also Indian, Japanese, Moorish, Cambodian, Thai,
Greek, and just about anything else I've tried... except for stuff
like McDonalds that doesn't count as food anyway.
