There are people who say they never watch TV but do, and then there are people like me who don't.
“100 Years of Solitude,” “Transatlantic,” “Nobody’s Fool,” “The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love,” are a few novels that I’ve liked. Roddy Doyle, “Moby Dick,” lots of biographies and history as well. I enjoy reading first novels - by far the best this year was a transgender story called “For Today I am a Boy” by Kim Fu. "Far from the Tree" by Andrew Solomon and "Fire Shut up in My Bones" by Charles M. Blow really resonate.
My musical tastes. are all over the place - Regina Spektor, John Coltrane, Robyn, Doc Watson, Yo La Tengo, James Brown, Sharon Van Etten, Lou Reed. And so on.
