I'll read almost anything and love what captures my imagination. Best of all is responding to books in the larger cultural sense, loving or loathsome. Literature should have a place in the wider world.
Love among the Walnuts is a charming, amusing story, if not profound. It's shelved as a young adult novel in my library, and I loved it in high school, though I'm not quite as enthusiastic now. However, it does have fun characters, and while the plot isn't original, the highjinks are a little different. And like most non-drama stories taking place near a "loony bin" it's the loonies who really make the story.
