Occupation It's just a job... a means to an end.
Location United States
Introduction As a kid, when the others were out cycling or playing hide and seek, I was usually curled up in a corner a book wedged into my hands. If I didn't have any books to read, I read the Oxford English dictionary for pleasure. What was that all about? So... the fallout of that childhood is me - a lover of words, a thinker in images. A weirdo (just kidding) whose soul feels trapped and lost if it doesn't manage to squeeze in some quality time with books.
Interests I read a lot - faves include Murakami, Steinbeck, Graham Greene, Rushdie, Naipaul. One hit novelists - Arundhati Roy, Harper Lee.
Favorite Movies American Beauty, Exotica, The Big Lebowski, thrillers. And anything that surprises me - there are some movies that I approach with low expectations, and when they engage me beyond the 10 minutes I'm mentally prepared to give them, I love it.
Favorite Music Dire Straits, Sting, Leonard Cohen, REM
Favorite Books The God of Small Things, Beastly Tales from Far and Near, The Grapes of Wrath, A House for Mr. Biswas, The Power and the Glory, Cannery Row. My reading is a little skewed towards writers of Asian origin. That's no coincidence.

The children are waiting! Please tell them the story about the bald frog with the wig:

That's the way, aha aha I like it aha aha
