June 6, Tuesday afternoon -- Reading Greg Iles

On a rainy day in downtown San Francisco
Reading Dead Sleep, by Greg Iles. She bought it from the crack addict down the street. Greg Iles is an author she was interested in reading and it was only fifty cents. It's a suspense novel about a photo journalist who is trying to find out who murdered her twin sister, who she finds painted nude in a one of a series of portraits. The other women in the portraits, she discovers, have been murdered, too.

Before this she read The World According to Garp. She loves John Irving. She also really loves Cormac McCarthy. His novel, The Crossing, is one of her favorite books.

Life has been difficult for her lately due to a foot injury (she had to lift her dog off her lap so she could move her foot while we were talking). She writes stories herself, what she describes as imaginative fiction.

Thanks and good luck.

It's nice to see people still cracking open books and writing even though they are down on their luck. This reminds me of George Orwell's Down and out in Paris and London.

Do you think maybe the painter did it?

I've put Down and Out in Paris and London on my reading list. I love Orwell. Homage to Catalonia is one of my favorite books.
