|Introduction||Reading and travel are my two main obsessions--everything else just falls into a distant third place. A reader by birth and a bookseller by trade, I mainly devour fiction, though anything by Bill Bryson would make my laminated list. I like the classics but I especially love modern fiction, Southern writers, and books set in the Caribbean, my favorite place to travel. I work hard year 'round at a wonderful local independent bookshop, so that I can earn enough money to travel a little. I wanted my blog to be simply As the Crowe Flies, but alas, that name was already taken. So now I fly AND read and all is well.|
|Favorite Music||U2, Over the Rhine, Jimmy Buffett, Toumani Diabate, Robert Crowe, Emmylou Harris, John Fahey, Loreena McKinnit, most Baroque composers, Ry Cooder, Tim O'Brien, Indigo Girls, They Might Be Giants|

Montgomery, Abraham Verghese, Zadie Smith, Jhumpa Lahiri, and just about any book of Caribbeana. Also books about the Indo-Pakistani experience.|
If you were a cannibal, what would you wear to dinner?
Nothing white, since blood stains are just as hard to get out as tomato stains.
