“Whenever he was en route from one place to another, he was able to look at his life with a little more objectivity than usual. it was often on trips that he thought most clearly, and made the decisions that he could not reach when he was stationary.” - Paul Bowles, The Sheltering Sky ― Paul Bowles, The Sheltering Sky

West with the Night: Beryl Markham: 9780865471184: Amazon.com: Books
This is tied with To Kill a Mockingbird for all time favorite book. I initially picked it up because of the fantastic cover art (The Beguiling of Merlin - Burne-Jones), but the story, the mood, the PreRaphaelite-esque poetry and characters - it captivated, captured me. There are so many layers, so many levels to this book, I encounter something new every time I read it. And it breaks my heart. Every. Single. Time.
Literary romance! One of the best.

The novel tells the story of the rise and fall of the mythical town of Macondo through the history of the family. It is a rich and brilliant chronicle of life and death, and the tragicomedy of humankind. In the noble, ridiculous, beautiful, and tawdry story of the family, one sees all of humanity, just as in the history, myths, growth, and decay of Macondo, one sees all of Latin America. Love and lust, war and revolution, riches and poverty, youth and senility -- the variety of life, the endlessness of death, the search for peace and truth -- these universal themes dominate the novel. Whether he is describing an affair of passion or the voracity of capitalism and the corruption of government, Gabriel Garcia Marquez always writes with the simplicity, ease, and purity that are the mark of a master. Alternately reverential and comical, One Hundred Years of Solitude weaves the political, personal, and spiritual to bring a new consciousness to storytelling. Translated into dozens of languages, this stunning work is no less than an accounting of the history of the human race.

Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil. John Berendt.

Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, GA - Statue of the Bird Girl. With the popularity of the book, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt, the statue had to be moved to the Telfair Museum of Art. Originally sculpted for a family in Massachusetts.
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil-- another pinner says: The movie scarcely did this brilliant book justice. It's the true story of a murder that became the scandal of Savannah, Georgia. It's worth reading for the descriptions of Savannah alone (which also happens to be one of my favorite cities) add murder, intrigue and colorful characters and it makes a great read.

He makes me want to learn Spanish. He is half of the reason I fell in love with love. The passion he writes with is undeniable, and yet unbelievable.
One of my favorite poets. The Poetry of Pablo Neruda
"To feel you in my veins like God in the rivers..."He is worth reading.
