Fiction: there are just too many to name. I have a library at home!
A few of my favorites are:
-100 Years of Solitude (Gabriel Garcia Marquez)

-Tender is the Night (F. Scott Fitzgerald)
-The Age of Grief (Jane Smiley)
-Winesburg Ohio (Sherwood Anderson)
-The Fountainhead (Ayn Rand Disclaimer: I have other reasons for
putting this book on my list besides her philosophy.)
-A Farewell to Arms (Ernest Hemingway)
This list could go on and on and on as I usually have a currently
reading pile of about 3 books including at least one non-fiction
book. Some latest nonfiction reads include:
-The Information, the History, the Theory, the Flood (James
-Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea
-Crossing Mandelbaum (Kai Bird.)
-The Nuclear Express: A Political History of The Bomb and It's

Vanished from the Streets of Tokyo--and the Evil That Swallowed Her
I love documentaries and am really good at finding ones about
unusual/obscure subject matter. I have a fondness for foreign films
and have been trying to catch up on the classics.
My list is getting too long, but there are more, so ask if you want
I love many different types of music and musicians. Jazz (Miles
Davis always finds its way onto my playlists), hip-hop, Afrobeat,
Latin (Danay Suarez), classical (recently Kayhan Kalhor and The
Kronos Quartet.) My music preferences are always evolving.
Food: I love to try new foods! I also enjoy culinary adventures in
