Time for another list ...

... and this time an unsual one: In Authorial Dominance, Patrick Kurp - inspired by Kate S. - lists those who dominte his bookshelves. So we can all do this. Mine would be very idiosyncratic, because I purge my shelves regularly and only hang on to poetry and certain authors I am especially fond of. And who might they be? John Cowper Powys, Henry Miller, Ortega y Gasset, Nicolas Berdyaev, Josef Pieper, Romano Guardini. I'm not at home and that's all I can think of.

  1. I, too, cull my library regularly, extremely severely in the last couple of months when we moved from a house to a small apartment. But I could not bring myself to get rid of any John P. Marquand, most Orwell, Sinclair Lewis, H.L. Mencken, Thomas Mann, Dawn Powell, and a tattered old collection of the work of S.J. Perelman. That's all I can think of, too, as I, also, am not at home right now.
