Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.
A New York Times blog piece by LEE SIEGEL on the changing role of clothes as a tool for revealing character in fiction. For Homer, Byron, Austen, Flaubert, and F. Scott Fitzgerald what a character wore told us something, but in the era of the Gap, H&M, Mango, and Abercrombie & Fitch how much does what we wear reveal about us?
