I guess I've been a Dicken's fan since first reading him in high school, all these thousand years ago.
I've always felt his stories were my story. Now I feel that his stories are our stories.
Saroyan's, "The Human Comedy," was an early favorite, too.
Harper Lee's, "To Kill A Mocking Bird," and anything by Eudora Welty.
Rawling's, "Sojourner," reminds me of friendships, here.
"No soul is desolate as long as there is a human being for whom it can feel trust and reverence."
