Thanks for your e-mail, Eric Forbes (nice name; sounds important :-)). Much appreciated.

I see you just posted a list of Australian writers. To be honest, I have not yet read any book written by an Aussie. But I did buy five second-hand books penned by Australian authors some two months ago (from a Swiss lady married to an Australian). I still have to find some time to read those books.... Right now, I would like to reread Amy Tan's books. She's a great writer! Do you agree?

All the best and God bless!

P.S. How I wish to see this Israeli film "My Michael" one day. Thanks for the info!
