All books or writers posted on the website are in this category. Other tabs are effectively subsets or other connections. (Word & Film, musicians or artists who also write, etc.) The authors shown are a growing selection of what might be called the Roaming the Arts Reading List. It is what we read. Some a growing interest and others their entire output. The arts are a passion. Who you, the browser, choose to read, or listen to the music of, depends on your interest and passion.
