Over mijI was born in 1948 in New York City and am a product of NYC public education through graduate school; I hold a masters degree in social work and recently retired after 35 years being Program director for psychosocial treatment programming for veterans with PTSD and SMI.

My interest in books goes way back, first hooked on the Landmark Series of books for kids and Tom Swift graduating then to [Harold Robbins] I fell big time for [A Stone For Danny Fisher], [the Carpetbaggers] and [Nevada Smith].

Wasn't long till I got into the beats- Ginsberg, Corso, Burroughs and Kerouac and ever since have had a wide interest in reading and have kept an active journal since 1980 with many stories, reminiscence, reportage and personal reflections.

Always interested to see what others are reading and to explore ideas and the written word. I consider my books to be among my most important possessions.

Over mijn boekenAfter my last move I had to wean my library and now have a smaller library made up of long time favorites and books intending to read. As I catalogue I am more aware that my interests are for contemporary american and british fiction, eastern european fiction, latin american fiction, history and memoirs.

will occassionally add books borrowed form the local public library.

Recent heightened interest in South America, specifically Argentina. Also long time interest in Jewish themes. Sports fan.
