Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Tolkien, Shakespeare, Dante, Socrates, McCaffery, Chalker, Flaubert and any number of mind candy writers like Jackie Collins have filled many of my days with deep satisfaction.... every single one of them write about people as they are.... flawed, irreverent, difficult, etc. I'm not fond of the human fantasists that do all the heartfelt goody two shoe, do no wrongs... I have never experienced anyone like that... treated like that but not in actuality like that. So give me reality with fantastic circumstances, deep themes, and something to seriously think on and I am a happy camper.
