Umberto Eco, Ethan Canin, Jane Austin are my favorite writers.
Eco's The Island of the Day Before is a book I could pick up, read
and laugh with any time. Recenlty I read Prouste and the Squid, a
book about language and the brain. Ethan Canin feels like a good
brother to me. I just finished reading The Swerve, about Lucretus:
the best book I've read in a couple of years. Currently reading The
Amelie, Travelers and Magicians, Les Trois Seasons, American Beauty
are some of my favorite films. My taste in music is fairly
eclectic. I'm not a big opera fan, but I do love Turandot and some
Monteverdi. Ryuichi Sakamoto, Tony Bennett, Ralph Towner,
Andalusian music from Spain, various modern jazz artists, the
Beatles are some of the things on my Ipod. It also contains a few
lectures from UC Berkeley.
