What was your favorite book at ages 5, 10, 15 and 20? Looking at what's been released in the last few years, would any of your favorites change?
At age 5 it was definitely a book called RATSMAGIC by Christopher Logue and Wayne Anderson. A very strange, slight book.
15 definitely Paul Theroux's O-ZONE. He's better known as a travel writer and this was his one sci fi novel.
I've read a lot of amazing books in the past few years. Many that were around during my formative years but that I'd never heard of or just passed over. My favorite author is Russell Hoban. I'd read his stuff and been amazed by it in high school but only recently found myself tracking down all of his more recent (and equally visionary) novels. A few of the authors I've been following most recently: Nathaniel Minton, Karen Russell, Brian Francis Slattery, and Mark Richard.
