Vellichor Afternoons

I like trip-hop, anachronism, cats, both coffee and tea, the sound of rain on a tin roof, antique keys, pop culture as a substitute for religion, theatre, photography, Oxford commas, and, of course, reading.

The Snows of Kilimanjaro and Other Stories (Scribner Classics) - Ernest Hemingway My previous experience with Hemingway was A Farewell to Arms, and I think I put it down a few chapters in saying, 'Oh, god, I think The Real World must be on TV somewhere.' But I have to say, he really shines in short story form, and I think "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place" is just plain masterful.

I do wonder though; can any self-respecting, self-proclaimed feminist get away with saying she has discovered she like Hemingway?

I guess that's why I eschew labels anyway.
