Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
I have always loved kids books and figure all these years of fine art are just a run-up to my career as a children's book author, if I ever get it together...
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Certainly not obscure by any means, but I absolutely crack up over Dickens. Not everything he did, but there are a lot of passages in David Copperfield and Nicholas Nickelby where his use of language is really, make-you-cry funny. I think people take the classics for granted because they associate them with high school required reading, but if you're looking for some top-drawer writing and can dig the 19th-century sensibility, these two are must-reads. Moby Dick, too... killer funny. Seriously!
