With rare exceptions, I do not read Romance, Horror, Fantasy, True Crime, Historical Fiction, Science Fiction, Christian Fiction or anything to do with vampires, the paranormal, etc.
I DO read a great deal of travel writing and fiction by international authors such as Bryce Courtenay, Jumpa Lahiri, Nadine Gordimer, Edwidge Danticat, etc. with authors from Africa, South America, Cuba, India, Australia and the Caribbean among my favorites. I also like most Mann, Orange, Booker, Milkweed Prize and NPR and New York Times-reviewed books, especially those dealing with Non Western cultures/customs, belief systems, etc. I always prefer first-person narrative, but will consider others. I love quirky books such as those by Anne Soffee Thomas, Hillary Carlip, etc., and cozy mysteries that cannot be figured out by page 30.
Additionally, I like well-researched non-fiction on anthropology, non-Christian religions, health and medicine, travel and exploration (particularly solo circumnavigation and polar exploration) animals, mid-20th century to modern art and architecture and memoirs about the immigrant experience anywhere.
So, eclectic readers, please direct me to your shelves and offer me a deal.
