5 Questions about books

Today “R and R” asks Lisa Caputo, Head of Adult Services, “5 Questions about books” – (actually, she answered 6!)

The books you are currently reading: Mathilda Savitch by Vincent Lodato.  I’m listening to The Museum of Innocence by Orhan Pamuk.

Book you’re an evangelist for: Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout… everyone in Readers’ Services has heard me on my soapbox!

Book you most want to read again for the first time: A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole.  This book is quite an experience.  You will never forget Ignatius Reilly, dubbed by one of the other characters in the book as “slob extraordinaire, a mad Oliver Hardy, a fat Don Quicote, a perverse Thomas Aquinas rolled into one.”

A favorite line from a book: “You feel blue?  Get up and do!” from Broken for You by Stephanie Kallos.

You tend to gravitate towards books about: Interpersonal relationships, dealing with life’s hardships and growing through the experience.

Your top three authors: Anne Tyler, John Updike and John Steinbeck.
