This is such a silly category, but one can be as intertextual as
one likes, I suppose. Faves would have to include Nabokov. (I wish
I was as literate as him in just one language...) Tolstoy, though
NOT Anna Karenina apart from the one great line about happy
families. It's all downhill after that. Shakespeare but not all of
him - can't abide the histories (I don't find fat drunken men
_that_ funny...you can see them around town any Friday or Saturday
night you wish...)
Oh yes! - this was a _favourites_ category! Don't you think that
non-favourites are more interesting?
I have a soft spot for EE Milne and Pooh, and also one for Arthur
Ransome and Swallows & Amazons. (Active heroines! boats! - it's
why I took up dinghy sailing at the age of 10...and stopped it when
I almost got my brother and myself killed...)
I read my way through of all JM Barrie's plays and lived to tell
the tale. Austen (of course); Woolf. Salman Rushdie, but not much
of the later stuff. Speaking of which, I recently sampled some
Annie Proulx and decided I need to read more... I have really
enjoyed the Lessing autobiographies. Probably should get around to
Movies: I love classics. In the more recent genre, I really enjoyed
Sideways. I saw Gravity and was moderately impressed. I liked Blue
Jasmine but wonder about Woody Allen.
Music: classical _esssspeccciallly big lush romantic stuff,
broadway. mostly. have recently found myself liking more chamber
music than I ever thought I would. (Who thought one could get sick
(I'll drink to that/ And one for Mahler!)...anybody identify
food: I love spicy food, and I intend to go on loving spicy food
even though it doesn't love me any more. After all, this is a site
for unrequited love, no?
