About My Library
At the moment, I'm only adding titles I actually own. Eventually, I'll add other things I've read but not kept, and will have to come up with some pithy tag to distinguish them. You'll see I have an Anglophilic bent, with 19th-c novelists like Dickens and Thackeray, Edwardian social commentators like Grossmith and Jerome, elegant pre-WW1 writers like Saki and Bramah, and both vicious post-war satirists like Waugh and gentle comedians of manners like Thirkell. On the American side, I love the '60s, I love novels about magic, I love good war journalism, and that's just random. My three sacred texts as a child were "Little Women," the four Mary Poppins books, and the two Alice books--all narratives of escape. So you'll see fantasy like Tolkien, Lewis, and Pullman as well. And I think the greatest novelist of historical fiction is the late, great Dame Dorothy Dunnett.
