I am Ernie Brill the author of I Looked Over Jordan and Other Stories. I am a lifetime student of American Literature, and global literature, especially literature from Latin America, Africa, Asian, and the Middle East.
I've also written three novels and two other collections of short stories. I've just finished a new novel, Carvings, about two Vietnam vets and Hurricane Katrina.
This blog has at least three offerings:
l)discussions of literature from all over the world- my musings and yours
2)discussions of life as a "fiction" writer centered on the idea that fiction, the truer global history, represents the collective emotional memories of our international communities.
3) various lists I've composed during my reading career of over half a century
