I'm a writer as my career and I also teach.
I'm not on the site too much, so I can't see likes, best to message and say hi and I see it in my inbox.
Hunger by Knut Hamsun, Journey to the End of the Night by Celine, Bukowski, Kerouac, Michel Houellebecq, they are my favorites. My reading list is large and most of the time I'm just trying to keep up with author friends' latest releases.
Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, The Birthday Party, Depeche Mode, Melvins, Ty Segall, Mark Lanegan, Nina Simone, Neil Diamond, The Wolfgang Press, Wovenhand, 16HP, Tindersticks, July Talk, Tom Waits, Swans, and way too many more.
Usually sci-fi, Brit comedy, and documentaries.
