Tom Carty 🔖answers thirteen questions in Booker's Dozen. 

 Reading Aloud And Allowed


TPQ: What are you currently reading? 

TC: I am rereading Nagaland by Jonathan Glancy.

TPQ: Best and worst books you have ever read?

TC: Worst: Les Miserables Book 2 by Victor Hugo. Could have said the same thing in half the time if worded simpler. Bought book 2 by accident. Wouldn’t buy book 1. There is a great story there, but told horribly. Best book: The Cow Book by John Connell. It’s like talking to someone from back home.

TPQ: Book most cherished as a child?

TC: The Trouble with the Irish by Leonard Patrick O’Connor Wibberly.

TPQ: Favourite Childhood author?

TC: Annie MP Smithson.

TPQ: First book to really own you?

TC: Trouble With the Irish, very humourous take on the Troubles: poignant how it looked to better times at the end, just before the latest Troubles started.

Book Benches In Bulgaria

TPQ: Favourite male and female author?

TC: Annie MP Smithson, John Connell.

TPQ: A preference for fact or fiction?

TC: Fact.

TPQ: Biography, autobiography or memoir that most impressed you?

TC: Peeling The Onion, by Gunter Grass, an autobiography.
 
TPQ: Any author or book you point blank refuse to read?

TC Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler.

TPQ: A book to share with somebody so that they would more fully understand you?

TC: The Cow Book!
 

TPQ: Last book you gave as a present?

TC: Something on 1916 to the brother.

TPQ: Book you would most like to see turned into a movie?

TC: The Story of Chicago May – Nuala O Faoilan. Chicago May, My Story by Mae Ann Duignan (aka Churchill Sharpe), Chicago May by Frank Columb. Basically, the story of Chicago May. I have started a play on a few parts of her story, and got a few poems from it!

TPQ:
The just must - select one book you simply have to read before you close the final page on life.

TC: I’d suppose getting a reading and full understanding of the Bible and it’s context would be best.
