A most difficult question! I have too many books I consider great. I will say anything and everything by Langston Hughes, for his optimism against all odds, and for being a true jazz poet. And then perhaps Jack Kerouac who I see in Hughes's light whose On the Road propelled my adolescent self into the curious world of writing deliberately but with a good dose of spontaneity and "undisturbed flow from the mind.
I think there's a level of insurgency, broadly defined, that makes a book great. A passion for newness, also; to make new and renew the one reading. I continue to harbour curiosity about the relationship between identity and exile. I see it as a book about learning how to swim, essentially; how to navigate the various and often difficult depths of living whilst remembering the value of enchantment along the way.
