    Favorite Book: "The Heart of the Matter" by Graham Greene

    "My favorite book?...Well...ah,...that's food for thought...Can I go with a tie?...Okay, I got it..."The Heart of the Matter" by Graham Greene and "Cannery Row" by John Steinbeck. I love both writers. If I had to say why these two books, it's simply because both men are two of the greatest authors of the 20th century. Both are able to get down in print what it is to be human."
