'Tis strange - but true; for truth is always strange. Stranger than fiction.

Lord Byron

I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read in the train.

My favorite authors:

Gottfried Benn

Patricia Cornwell
comments: Her bleak and gripping crime stories just take me out of my reality better than anything else
The New Yorker
comments: I know, it's a magazine and not a book, but some of the greatest American Writers have published excellent stories in there. I just wish it weren't so expensive over here.
