Here's a little peek into his library:
Books recently read for fun: Siddhartha (Hermann Hesse), I Am Not Myself These Days (Josh Kilman Purcell)
Books recently read for class: Hamlet, King Lear (William Shakespeare), Paradise Lost (John Milton), The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Mao (Junot Diaz)
Books you want to read: The Sound and the Fury (love love LOVE Faulkner) and The Fault in Our Stars (John Green)
Books you read as a kid: Peter Pan (J.M. Barrie), Alice in Wonderland (Lewis Carroll), The Hundred and One Dalmatians (Dodie Smith) -- I'm a Disney kid.
Why you like to read: It's an escape act, I guess. When you find that really good read -- I mean, that one that really grabs you, so that you can't stop reading until you've read the whole thing cover to cover -- and you've realized that you've lived someone's entire lifetime in just an hour and a half, it's staggering. It's fantastic.
Favorite book genres/topics: Fantasy, I'm now getting into a lot of Fantasy Realism in particular. I also like reading fictionalized memoirs (like I Am Not Myself These Days)
Favorite authors: J.M. Barrie, Roald Dahl, Lewis Carroll, William Faulkner, Maiya Williams (and not just 'cause she's my mom) and so many more!
Favorite playwrights and plays: Shakespeare, especially A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Laramie Project (Moisés Kaufman)
Favorite movies: The Dark Knight, Casablanca, Cloud Atlas, and Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Favorite musicians/music genres: David Bowie, Fun., Janelle Monáe, Lana Del Rey, The Beatles
Anything else you want to say: Tip for the road (literally): Keep Hermann Hesse's Siddhartha in your car. It's a brilliant read, and you can open it up to any page and find a little gem of the deepest insight.
