art-writing-121Although I’m not reading anymore, I recently emerged from a steady diet of words.  Here’s some literature I’ve lived through and, for the most part, benefited from the experience.  If you’ve sat down with any of the same works or writers, your commentary is greatly appreciated.  Also, please leave any suggestions, as I’m always liable to explore new territory.
