2000 - 2010: another lens for the question at hand

“I am interested in what titles come into our lives and become keepsakes to us, what titles become deeply important in our lives, not only as writers, but as thinking and feeling human beings, and hence, what titles we gift or pass along to others.

As well, don’t we form communities based upon these common responses to literature, art, cultural productions? I believe we do.”
